The majority of students who complete an A Level programme progress to University – last year 99% followed this progression pathway – to this end we offer a great deal of support to students in term of information on Universities and the application process and the financial provision that is available. There will be a display on “How to apply to University successfully” as well as information on Kingsmead Alumni.

In order to give Parents and Students the opportunity to ask questions with regard to overall ethos and expectations of the 6th Form, the Head Teacher, members of Senior Leadership Team and the Learning Director of Sixth Form will give a talk in the theatre, with a Q&A session.
Following on from the Recruitment Evening, students will complete a current application form available to download here, to indicate their progression intentions; this will be followed by an interview with a member of the Sixth Form team to discuss appropriate courses - taking into consideration interest, skills and prior attainment – this will take place in the Spring term.
Kingsmead welcomes applications from external students to follow Advanced Level subjects, but please be aware that consideration to external applicants will be given after internal students have been offered places. External students will be considered on the basis of their confirmed results at GCSE. Students must achieve at least an average of 40+ GCSE points (equivalent to 8 Cs and above), but please note that many subjects require a GCSE B grade in the subject to be studied at AS Level.
During the summer term students who have secured a place in our Sixth Form will have the opportunity to enjoy 2 induction days, to taste courses and gain further insight into our ways of working – so that informed choices can be made which will ensure a successful transition to the Sixth Form and beyond.
