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 4 GCSE grade 8s or higher, they are eligible to apply for an INSPIRED Academic Scholarship worth 25% remission on fees. A small number of Bursaries worth up to 100% remission on fees are also available to apply for on a financial means-tested basis. Applying for an INSPIRED Scholarship 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.
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.

It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening.” This was certainly the case on Thursday 28 April as we hosted our annual Spring Concert in the Croston Theatre.
