Admissions and Applications

Internal Applications

Students will receive support on applications for OPGS Sixth Form in school and will use SIMS Options to select their A level choices.

The closing date for internal applications will be in December.

External Applications

External applicants can apply for a place in the Sixth Form from the 6th December onwards. Applications should be made through site.

The closing date for external applications is likely to be the end of January.

In the case of external applicants, we will call for references upon receipt of the application; we will be requesting information on your predicted grades, in addition to a report on your effort, conduct and contribution to the extracurricular life of your school.

For internal candidates we will look at the same information and will discuss your suitability for A Level studies with your Director of Study.

Meetings to consider applications for sixth form places may take place in January – March when applicants will meet with one of the Sixth Form Leadership Team. Students should ensure that they have their most up-to-date school report with them. Offer letters will be sent out in the spring and in most cases will be conditional offer letters confirming that the student has a place in the Sixth Form subject to their GCSE results meeting the school’s entry requirements.

Please contact the school if you wish to make a late application.
