In order to gain a place in the Sixth Form at OPGS a student must have
- A minimum of 6 passes at GCSE (grades A* - C) in separate subjects, with a minimum of 4 B grades (or Level 6) which must be in the subjects the student wishes to study at A level/Pre-U
- A minimum of a B grade (level 6) in both Mathematics and English Language
- For Science and Mathematics, a minimum of an A grade (or level 7) is recommended
- The school shall determine which B grades are required when A level subjects requested have not been taken at GCSE level
Year 12 students will study 3 or 4 A level/Pre U courses (dependent on GCSE average point score and the courses chosen). In Year 13 students will have the option to pick up an Extended Project Qualification.
