Entry Requirements & Assessment

All candidates for the Sixth Form, internal and external, are required to obtain the following qualifications for entry:

· a minimum of 6 GCSEs at grades A*-B / 9 - 6 (including English and Mathematics), and
· the GCSE grade requirement for each A Level subject of choice, as laid out in our Sixth Form Prospectus.

Places are offered conditional upon these requirements.

Progression from Year 11 at EHS into the Sixth Form and from the Lower Sixth to Upper Sixth is dependent in all cases upon sustained good progress and attitude.

Prior to the release of GCSE results, external candidates are required to attend an interview with the Headmistress and Head of Sixth Form, and a confidential report requested from their present school.

External applications can be considered at anytime during the academic year prior to entry to the Sixth Form, although applicants for the Sixth Form Scholarships must register ahead of the relevant scholarship assessment day - see the section on Scholarships for further detail.
