Sixth Form Admissions
Year 11 pupils currently at Overton Grange School and pupils in the appropriate age range currently studying elsewhere may apply to join the Sixth Form. The entry criteria for external applicants are the same for those who are already in the school. The entry criteria in 2017 are set out below.
The Sixth Form Open Evening is held during the Autumn term and this year it was on the 20 October 2016. However if you would still like to visit the Sixth Form you are more than welcome to do so. Please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
The Sixth Form prospectus includes an outline of all courses offered.
Please note that there have been a number of changes to the way in which AS and A-Level courses have been examined since 2016. The government has decided to separate the AS Level Examination from the final A2 Examination so the AS Level result will no longer contribute to the final A-level grade. The A-level courses will be a two year linear course with all examinations taken at the end.
In addition to the A’ level courses we offer the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Business which is the equivalent of two A’ levels each. We also offer the BTEC Level 3 Extended certificates in Business, Travel & Tourism, Health & Social Care, Sport and Performing Arts which are the equivalent of one A’ level each. These courses, which must be followed for 2 years to receive a qualification, are good for students who prefer doing coursework to exams. They can be combined with other A’ level courses and are accepted for entry into Higher Education.
Please be aware that the entry requirements into Year 13 to study A2 levels are the equivalent of three grades D’s in your end of Y12 examinations. For BTEC students 6 assignments must be passed at Merit level for the Diploma and 3 assignments passed for the extended certificate to continue onto Year 13.
The documents below refer to entry in September 2017.
We are proud to be in partnership with Unique Football Academy which offers full-time scholarships to post 16 students alongside an academic program.
