The West Bridgford School

A Specialist Technology Academy

Admission to Post 16

  • Admissions Policy

Students do not have to live in the catchment area to apply for a place in our Sixth Form.  The West Bridgford School Post-16 Centre only offers A level courses.  Subsequently, we propose the following admissions criteria:

  • To study 3 AS level subjects (plus General Studies) students need to obtain 3 GCSEs at grade 6 or above in subjects to be studied (plus a further 2 or more GCSEs at grade 5 or above)
  • To study 4 AS level subjects (plus General Studies) students need to obtain 2 GCSEs at grade 7/8 and 2 GCESs at grade 6 (or higher) in the subjects to be studied (plus 1 or more GCSEs at grade 5 or above)

Students will only be considered if they have achieved a minimum of Grade 5 at GCSE level in both English and Mathematics.

These requirements do not include English oral grades or GCSE half course grades. There will be no upper admission limit for applications to Year 12 from outside the school.

Progression to Year 13

In order to move onto an A2 course students must normally achieve a D grade at AS.

Over subscription for the Post-16 Centre

Where the number of applications for admission exceeds the number of places available, the following criteria will be applied in the order set out below, to decide which children to admit:

  1. Children who already attend the school and meet the entry criteria
  2. In the event of an over-subscription of the above criteria proximity to the school will be used with those living nearer being given priority. Distance measurements to be made as the crow flies from the home address to the main reception office of the school.
