Who can join our Sixth Form?

All students who are motivated and keen to join the Sixth Form will usually be offered a place on an appropriate course.

If you would like to arrange an opportunity to meet with a member of the Sixth Form team to discuss your options in detail, please be sure to contact us and we will be happy to arrange this for you.

A Levels

What are A Levels?
  • Advanced level of study with greater depth and challenge
  • Available as a familiar or new subject offering progression to wide range of University courses
  • All A level courses run for 2 full years. 

What grades do you need?

To study A level or Level 3 BTEC courses you will need at least five GCSE’s at grades 5-9 (including English and Maths). Some subjects may have further entry requirements; please check the subject specific entry requirements. If you are unsure if you will meet the requirements you will be given advice during your Sixth Form interviews.

Vocational Qualifications

Vocational courses are related to a broad area of work rather than a single academic subject.. Our level 2 and 3 vocational courses involve learning practical skills as well as theory. These subjects are studied in partnership with small training providers, but all students will come to Sir John Hunt Sixth Form at least once a week. Many courses do not have specific entry requirements but the number of target grades achieved at GCSE level will be taken into consideration.

As with Level 3 courses, you will have an interview with a member of our Sixth Form team who will be able to advise you of your options.
