Entry Requirements 

Entry Requirements 

Our core entry requirements are six or more GCSEs at grade 5+ including maths, English literature and English language. 

You will also need to achieve at least a grade 5 in the subjects you wish to study at A-level. If you are new to a subject we will consider achievement in the GCSE that most closely corresponds.

Interviews are an important part of our application process. They give us the opportunity to explore your strengths and interests and provide advice and guidance. Interviews will be taking place online this year.

We will apply some flexibility where you can demonstrate aptitude and enthusiasm for your chosen subjects, yet may not fully match our base entry requirements.

We expect our students to study at least three A-levels and will support you to achieve the highest grades.
