Admissions

Requirements For Entry

After taking examinations at the end of Year 11 most Westholme students enter the INSPIRED Sixth Form for a two-year course in A Levels. Each year the School also welcomes a number of new students into the INSPIRED Sixth Form from other schools. In order to enter the INSPIRED Sixth Form, students are ideally expected to achieve 6 GCSEs at Grade 6, including English and Maths* with a Grade 7 in those subjects they wish to study at A Level if they have taken them at GCSE. If students are predicted 7 Grade 7s, they can apply for an INSPIRED Scholarship, which includes an interview with the Principal to discuss GCSE performance, A Level subject choices and what makes our INSPIRED Sixth Form so different to prepare all leavers for the 21st century workplace.

*Applications from students who achieve a Grade 4 will be considered on an individual basis.

Overseas Admissions

The School is currently a registered UK Border Agency sponsor (Tier 4) and accepts admissions from overseas students looking to enrol in the Sixth Form. Parents must inform the Registrar when returning a completed Registration Form or at any other time if their child requires sponsorship from the School in order to obtain a visa to study at Westholme.
