Applying for Sixth Form

When choosing your A level subjects you may find it useful to explore the links in the ‘Beyond the Sixth Form’ section of our website and to also look at the ‘Informed Choices’ document which was produced by the Russell Group Universities showing the qualifications required for each degree.

Internal students are actively supported and encouraged to apply to the Sixth Form at Beauchamps High School. Detailed information on course content and admissions criteria is set out in the Sixth Form Prospectus.

Students should complete the application form with their subject choices and hand in to the School Office by Friday 13th December 2019.
