Entrance information

We require a minimum of five GCSEs at grades at A* to C in five different subjects including English language and Maths (Grade 4 or above) and expect four of these grades to be at A* to B level. We accept short course GCSE grades as part of the entry requirements.

We do accept equivalent level two qualifications, such as BTEC and OCR Nationals, but they will only count as one grade as we look for achievement in five separate disciplines.

We reserve the right to make exceptions to these conditions through the discretion of our governing body, who will consider any exceptional personal circumstances upon application by the student concerned.
