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.

There are several Pathways through the Sixth Form. Which Pathway you take will depend on your achievements in Year 11 and your intentions for education after Sixth Form. You must first meet the entry requirements for the Pathway and specific subjects that you wish to follow. According to the entry requirements below, students are offered a specific Pathway:

  • Pathway 1: At least eight GCSEs grades 9-5 (minimum of six grade 7 or above).  Students can opt to do 4 A Levels or 3 A Levels and EPQ
  • Pathway 2: At least eight GCSEs grades 9-4 (minimum of four grade 5 or above).   Students study 3 A Levels
  • Pathway 3: At least eight GCSEs grades 9-4 (with fewer than four at grade 5).   Students study two Level 3 BTEC qualifications and can study one A Level or a further Level 3 equivalent qualification.
  • Pathway 4: At least five GCSEs grades 9-4 (including grade 4 in English or Maths).   Students study three Level 3 BTEC qualifications and may also retake GCSE Maths or English if they have not achieved a 4 in one or the other.
  • Pathway 5: Fewer than five GCSEs grades 9-4 (below grade 4 in Maths and English Language) Students follow the Level 2 Courses and retake both GCSE English and GCSE Mathematics

In addition to meeting the above requirements to follow each Pathway, students must also meet the entry requirements for each subject they intend to study.

For A Levels, students must have a minimum of eight GCSEs or equivalent at grade 4 or above including a 5 in English Language and Maths, and a grade 5 (or equivalent) minimum in each of the subjects they choose to study at this level.

Please note for several subjects there are additional conditions that must be met.

For Level 3 BTEC qualifications, students must have a minimum of five GCSEs or equivalent at grade 4 or above including a 4 in English Language or Maths to study at this level.

For subjects that 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
  6. boys currently at Wimbledon College who narrowly miss the entry requirements but for whom a viable course of studies can be arranged
  7. Catholic external applicants who narrowly miss the entry requirements but for whom a viable course of studies can be arranged
  8. other external applicants 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.
