Admissions to the 6th form in 2021

Students can apply to join our 6th form by completing an online application form any time between Wednesday 20th January and Wednesday 10th February 2021.  We welcome applications from students in our current Year 11 and students currently studying at other schools. 

Please click here to access the online application form.   

To support students in making an informed choice about the subjects they wish to study in the 6th form, we are holding an online 6th Open Evening on Tuesday 19th January 2021. 

This evening has two parts:

  • Any students can access videos and presentations about the subjects we offer in the 6th form via the 6th Form Open Evening page on our website.  There will also be videos from our Executive Headteacher, Ms Hyde-Boughey and our Head of 6th form, Mr Burns, about what students can expect if they join our 6th form.  Our Head Students have also made a fantastic video for prospective 6th form students.  All of the resources will be on our website for the rest of the academic year. 
  • Year 11 students at Claremont High School can book 5 minute appointments with teachers from all of our A-level and vocational subjects between 5 and 7pm on Tuesday 19th January 2021.  Bookings can be made here after 1pm on Friday 15th January.  Each student is limited to a maximum of 6 appointments.  Students from other schools can send any questions they have to the following email address SixthFormAdmissions@claremont-high.org.uk.  You will then be contacted directly by someone from the school.  

What happens after you make your application to our 6th form?

We plan to offer conditional places to all students that are on track to meet the entry criteria for their chosen subjects based on their current predictions (flight path predictions). 

Students will be informed of these decisions as soon as possible after the 10th February deadline for applications.  All students will then be invited to a (virtual) guidance discussion with someone from the 6th form team to discuss their application and the next steps.    

What happens after teacher assessed grades are issued in the summer? 

Our provisional plan - subject to the government's confirmation of arrangements for teacher assessments - will be to follow our usual process for admissions to the 6th form.  We will use teacher assessed grades to accept all those students that meet the overall entry criteria and the subject-specific entry criteria.  We will write to parents and students with more information about this process once the government have published their plans.

Our 6th form has been over-subscribed for the last 3 years so we would strongly encourage students to apply by Wednesday 10th February 2021.
