General Information Regarding Admissions

Pupils in Year 11 at Wimbledon College are eligible for a place in the Sixth Form if they meet Sixth Form entry requirements.

The Sixth Form welcomes applicants from other schools. External applicants must complete the Sixth Form application form and ask their current school to complete the reference section of the application form.

The entry requirements for Sixth Form are:

The courses on which boys start will depend on the average points score from GCSE. An A* is worth 8 points, an A 7,a B 6 and so on. We will calculate average points score on the basis of students’ progress 8 score. There will also be additional subject specific requirements. In all there are 5 pathways offered in the Sixth Form.

Pathway 1 is for students with an average points score of less than 4.5, which will mean mainly D and E grades. They will take the range of GCSE/Level 2 courses.

Pathway 2 is for students with an average points score of 4.5-5.5, which will mean mainly C grades with perhaps a B or a D as well. They will have access to our Level 3 vocational courses.

Pathway 3 is for students with an average points score of 5.6-5.9, which will mean mainly B and C grades. They will have access to 3 A level subjects, which they will pursue for 2 years.

Pathway 4 is for students with an average points score of 6.0-6.9, which will mean mainly B and A grades. They will be allowed to start 4 subjects, with the aim of continuing 3 for the full 2 years.

Pathway 5 is for students with an average points score of 7 or above, which will mean mainly A/A* grades. They will start 4 subjects and pursue them for 2 years.

If courses are oversubscribed, preference will be given in the following order:

1. boys who are looked after or who were recently looked after who meet the entry requirements
2. boys currently at Wimbledon College who meet the entry requirements
3. Catholic external applicants who meet the entry requirements
4. other external applicants who meet the entry requirements
5. boys who are looked after or who were recently looked after who narrowly miss the entry requirements but for whom a viable course of studies can be arranged

If courses are oversubscribed within any of the above categories, the uncapped Average Points Score (APS) at GCSE will be used to determine the order of admissions with the higher score being given preference.
We will not offer places to current Wimbledon College pupils or external applicants who fail to meet the entry requirements and for whom no reasonable programme of study can be arranged.
