Kingston Secondary Schools Admissions brochure

If you need advice on the process for sixth form application, please contact your Head of Year, Careers Teacher or the Sixth Form Admissions Officers at the school or college you are applying to.

Generally, learning programmes will run if there is enough uptake. When you apply, schools and college will look at what you have achieved (and are projected to achieve at GCSE) as well as what you are looking to do after you leave, usually at age 18. Admission on to programmes in Year 12 will only be considered if you have achieved the right level of qualification for entry.

You can see the post 16 offer and admissions arrangements for each school or college by visiting individual schools’ websites and to find out the minimum number of available places for external applicants.  You can speak to your head of year, careers teacher or the sixth form admissions officer at the school or college you are applying to or contact individual schools or colleges direct to ask for course information, entry requirements and applications deadlines.  

Some schools across our boroughs work in partnership in the sixth form including Teddington, Waldegrave and Hampton High, and Grey Court and Hollyfield in Kingston. If the subject you want to does not appear within a school’s prospectus, it is worth checking with the individual school whether those subjects can be accessed through another school within the partnership.  Where schools work in partnership you will need to apply to each school separately.
