The minimum entry requirement is 5 Level 4 GCSEs, including English and Maths. However, all A Level subjects have a specific requirement of a Grade 5 at GCSE (as a minimum) in the subject chosen or in a specifically identified subject unless otherwise stipulated. Further qualifications may have additional requirements.
In some subjects we will accept Level 2 BTEC courses as 1 qualification towards the 5 Level 4 grades required. Specific subject requirements can be found on the subject pages.
We request that all applications are made via the Kent Choices website.
Some students may find it difficult to settle into Sixth Form life, for this reason all Year 12 students are placed on a six-week trial where their progress in each of their subjects will be closely monitored. During this time students are encouraged to speak with us if they are finding Sixth Form study to challenging. Once the six weeks have passed, a students place will be confirmed on their chosen courses if they have shown they are capable of studying at this level. A student's progress, assessment results, attitude and effort will be taken into consideration.
