Online Application Form

What are the minimum entry requirements?

Our minimum entrance requirements are at least 6 GCSE grades at 4 or above (BTEC Qualifications can also be counted).  There are minimum entry requirements for individual subjects and you’ll find these in the Sixth Form Subject Handbook.

Will I be accepted?

When our online application period has closed we will review the applications and conditionally offer you a place in our Sixth Form subject to you meeting the minimum admission criteria and the individual subject entry requirements. If you are an external student the place we offer you will be subject to receiving satisfactory references from your current school.

What happens after you’ve been offered a place?

We will send you further information by email and you will be invited to attend our induction programme which runs for three days at the end of June after your GCSE exams.

What happens on Results Day?

All students (current S. Peter’s students & new students) will be invited to attend a short consultation meeting with a member of staff at S. Peter’s School.  We will look at your exam results and confirm course choices. If your results are different from what you hoped or expected we will look at alternative options with you and try to agree a programme of study that will meet your needs and aspirations.

Can I apply after the December deadline?

Yes you can. If the online application is no longer available please contact us at 6thform@speters.org.uk and we will advise you how to apply.  We will look at and consider applications right through to results day and the start of term in September. Any place offered at anytime is subject to proof of GCSE results and satisfactory references.

Is there any financial support available?

Yes. If you find that financial circumstances are a barrier to you studying then we will help you access financial support. The government Bursary Fund supports 16 to 19 year olds who face financial difficulties and those who most need help are supported with the costs of staying in education.

At S. Peter’s we are able to award discretionary bursaries to individual students. These awards are intended to help students stay in education by removing the financial barriers they may otherwise face. Awards can be made to help students with costs in the following areas:

  • transport
  • meals
  • books
  • Equipment

For further information about the 16-19 Bursary Fund and to see if you may be eligible please visit the school website.

Who do I contact for more information?

If you have any further queries please contact Debbie Scott or Pam Smith at 6thform@speters.org.uk
