Sixth Form

Choosing a Sixth Form is an important decision, as you begin the last stage of your school career. In this section, we aim to give you all the information you’ll need to apply for a place at EHS.

Sixth Form 2024 Entry 

Entry requirements
Whether you’re coming from another school or already at EHS, you’ll need the following qualifications to join our Sixth Form:
•    At least six GCSEs at Grades 6-9, including English and Maths.
•    AND the individual GCSE grade requirement for each A-Level subject you choose, as outlined in our Sixth Form Prospectus here on the website.

All offers of a place here are conditional on meeting these requirements. 

Entrance assessment
As well as needing to achieve the above qualifications, you’ll be assessed for a place in our Sixth Form, depending on where you’re currently studying.

If you already study at EHS
To move up from Year 11 to the Sixth Form (and from the Lower Sixth to the Upper Sixth), you’ll need to be making good progress in your studies and showing you’re still keen to learn.

If you’re coming from another school
Before the GCSE results are released, you’ll attend an interview with our Headmistress and Head of Sixth Form, and we’ll ask your current school for a confidential report on your achievement and progress.

Take a look at our Sixth Form Prospectus.
