Entry Requirements

Our Sixth Form has the following minimum entry criteria:

All King's School Year 11 students who meet these criteria may continue into the Sixth Form if they wish to.  There are also a minimum of 50 places available to external applicants. If these are oversubscribed, then we will prioritise enrolment using the over-subscription criteria set out in our Sixth Form Admissions Policy.
