ADMISSION TO THE SIXTH FORM
Admission to the Sixth Form is by written examination and interview in the Autumn Term prior to the proposed year of entry. All candidates will take entrance papers in the subjects they propose to study at 'AS' level. Each paper lasts 30 minutes. We anticipate that the majority of girls will study four subjects. In addition, all candidates will sit a cognitive assessment, for which no preparation is necessary.
Approximately 95% of total GCSE entries at CLSG are awarded A* and A grades. In this context, we would expect all our students to achieve 9 or 10 GCSEs at A* and A. We recognise that girls might be unlucky and achieve a B grade, but 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. At the end of the Lower Sixth, girls are expected to achieve a minimum of a B grade in any AS subject which she wishes to continue with at A2.
The completed registration form for Sixth Form entry must reach the Admissions Officer normally by a specific date in October (see below for 2014 entry) before the year of entry. Following the written papers a short-list of candidates will be called for interview, and from these the final selection will be made.
To register a candidate for entry in 2014, please complete the online registration form which can be found here, by Friday 11th October 2013.
