Application Process

Entry & Admission

Southfield Sixth Form offers a broad range of subjects that students can study to Level 3.  Students can study one of three pathways as follows:

  • Pathway 1:  ‘Academic’ qualifications (A Levels).   Students selecting this pathway will, in the main, study three A Levels and will have achieved 5 GCSEs 9 – 5 with a minimum of a grade 5 in English and maths.  They will, also, need to meet the subject entry requirements for all the subjects that they select.  

By exception, students may study four A Levels.  Students selecting this pathway will have achieved 5 GCSEs 9 – 7 with a minimum of a grade 7 in English and maths.  They will, also, need to meet the subject entry requirements for all the subjects that they select.

 

  • Pathway 2:  Any three Level 3 courses, a combination of ‘academic’ and ‘vocational’ qualifications.   Students selecting this pathway will need to meet the subject entry requirements for all the subjects that they select.  Students not achieving a grade 4 in English or maths will need to resit these exams.

 

  • Pathway 3:  ‘Vocational’ qualifications (BTECs and Cambridge Technical).   Students selecting this pathway will have achieved 5 GCSEs 9 - 4 (or equivalent Level 2 passes) with a minimum of a grade 4 in English and maths.  They will, also, need to meet the subject entry requirements for all the subjects that they select.  Students not achieving a grade 4 in English or maths will need to resit these exams.

 

Due to our restriction on numbers for the Open Evening we will now be conducting tours during the school day for those who were unable to attend.  If you, or anyone you know, would like to take part in a school tour, please contact Mrs Fernandes (Sixth Form Administrator) at [email protected]
