Joining the Sixth Form
Choices around Sixth Form usually take place during Year 11. Girls join us in Year 12 from a variety of independent, state and academy schools. We offer a vibrant, university-style centre and are the only school in Bristol to provide a choice of A Levels or the IB Diploma.
Places are offered based on your daughter’s predicted or actual GCSE grades, a reference from her current school and an interview with the Headmistress and Head of Sixth Form (Academic & UCAS).
A minimum of six GCSEs of grade B and above (or the equivalent in the new scale) are expected, including A*, A or B in the subjects selected for A Level or IB Diploma. Some subject-specific requirements may apply.
It is worthwhile discussing your daughter’s predictions and preferred options with our Admissions team at an early stage.
We also recommend a taster day to give your daughter a sense of life in the Sixth Form.
If you are applying to join our Sixth Form, please complete our Student Registration Form and Sixth Form Entry Information. These forms should be returned with a £50 registration fee.
A wide range of scholarships are available for Sixth Form study. Please visit our Sixth Form Scholarships webpage for more information.

A Levels or IB - Any Questions? - September 2017
An information evening at the start of the autumn term designed to stimulate discussion about the next course of study.
