Admissions

Requirements For Entry

After taking examinations at the end of Year 11 most Westholme students enter the Sixth Form for a two-year course in A Levels. Each year the School also welcomes a number of new students into the Sixth Form from other schools. In order to enter the Sixth Form, students are ideally expected to achieve 6 GCSEs at Grade 5, including English and Maths* with a Grade 6 in those subjects they wish to study at A Level if they have taken them at GCSE. All students will also have an interview with the Principal and Head of Sixth Form when there will be an opportunity to discuss GCSE performance, A Level subject choices and future career aspirations.

*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.
