year 12 (age 16+)
ADMISSION TO THE SIXTH FORM
We welcome girls from all backgrounds and schools to join our current Year 11 girls in moving up to the Sixth Form. We admit around 10-15 girls each year, many of whom are awarded bursary or scholarship places. We welcome the valuable contribution new girls bring - new ideas, new interests, new personalities and new ambitions.
Admission to the Sixth Form is by written examination and interview in the October prior to entry the following September. All girls will take entrance papers in the four subjects they propose to study at 'AS' level. Each paper lasts 30-40 minutes.
Approximately 95% of total GCSE entries at CLSG are awarded A* and A grades. In this context, we would expect all our Sixth Form applicants to achieve 9 or 10 GCSEs at A* and A. We would not expect any girls entering the Sixth Form to have more than 2 B grades at GCSE. Girls need to achieve at least an A grade at GCSE in the subjects that they wish to follow for A Level. Of course our Sixth Form girls work hard, but they also are keen to make the most of the wealth of extra-curricular activities here at CLSG, so that they finish school as girls well-equipped to continue on whichever path they choose after their time at school.
Please see pages 18 and 19 of our Admissions Booklet for full details of 16+ entry, and please click here to view our Sixth Form prospectus, for details of Sixth Form life, the opportunities on offer and the A level subjects you can study. You will also find details of the Sixth Form assessments and what you can expect to be tested on in the 'assessment information' document below.
