Applying to Sixth Form

The key to completing a successful application for our Sixth Form is twofold. Firstly, we operate a blocking system whereby subjects are grouped into blocks. Only one subject can be chosen from each block (as they are all taught at the same time). Secondly, each subject has its own entry criteria and these criteria must be met in order to be accepted onto the chosen course.

Blockings - Please click here to view the current blockings.

Entry Criteria - Grade 5  in Maths and English plus Grade 5 in at least 5 subjects. Please click here for more detailed information on our admissions policy.

Course Information - Please click here to view all our course information. It is vital that you check each subject you want to study against the entry criteria listed.

Application Process - We are operating a single paper application process this year. Pick up an application form from our Sixth Form Information Evening on Thursday 30 November 2017 from 6.00 - 8.30pm.

For both internal and external applicants the application must be fully completed to include signatures by subject staff to show that the subject choices made are realistic and within capability. Attendance at the Sixth Form Information Evening forms a compulsory part of the application process. If you have any queries please email Loretta Marklew/Kelly Heaton 6thformteam@beckfoot.org

Closing Date - All applications need to be submitted to the Sixth Form office by the end of school on Friday 5th January 2018. Applications may be considered after this date but priority will be given to those submitted in time.
