Entry Requirements


Our Standard Entry Requirement is six grade 5s, to include English Language and Mathematics.

Please note that we will only recognise qualifications which are included in the DFE performance tables for secondary schools.

Students applying from overseas should contact the Sixth Form Office directly to discuss entry requirements.

This tariff applies to most course options. However, some subject combinations do not require this. For example, a student hoping to secure a place on a Music degree may apply for Music and Music Technology and two other courses. In this case the standard entry requirement need not apply as the student's ability in Music is clearly the key. For this reason, every student who applies to the Sixth Form will need to meet with a senior member of staff from Twynham School to discuss their plans and potential subject mix. An appointment will be given to all applicants and, following this discussion, a programme of study can be agreed and an offer made stating the entry requirements.

We are likely to be oversubscribed and it is therefore essential that you work hard to make sure that you meet the entry requirement stated on the offer.

As well as meeting the academic requirements, we are looking for students who show ambition, are likely to embrace the special culture of our Sixth Form and have the inclination to give as well as receive.
