Application and prospectus
Each year we welcome a number of external applicants to our sixth form. These students make up approximately 25% of the year 12 intake. Places are allocated to existing year 11 Grey Court students in the first instance. Remaining places are then offered to external applicants. If we are over subscribed we allocate places based on distance to home, using the safest cycling route. Full details about the over subscription criteria may be found by following the link below.
Allocating a place for an external applicant may also depend on subject choices. If a subject is full we will offer places to applicants who have chosen to study subjects in which we have spaces.
We know that applying for sixth form can be a daunting task and we aim to guide you through the process to make it as easy as possible. Whether it's four A levels, a level 3 BTEC and an A level or a different mix with an apprenticeship, we are flexible enough to accommodate your needs and informed enough to help you through the process.
The application process
When you are ready to apply, click here for the application form. The deadline for entry in September 2022 is 15 December 2021.
Existing Grey Court students will be invited for an initial transition interview in November/December 2021, then all applicants, internal and external, will be invited for a formal interview in January/February 2022. During this interview we ask you to show us a piece of work of which you are particularly proud, and external students are also asked to bring their latest school report, which should include attendance data. We will be in touch closer to the time with your invitation to interview and a reminder of the documents you must bring.
If you have any questions about Grey Court sixth form or the application process please do not hesitate to contact our sixth form manager at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to arrange a visit to our school or to speak with you at any time.
Open evening 2021
We are hoping to hold an in-person sixth form open evening on 11 November 2021, but this will depend on the rate of Covid infections nearer to the time. Please keep an eye out here for the latest updates.
