ADMISSIONS TO THE SIXTH FORM - INTERNAL CANDIDATES
The Sixth Form provides continued academic challenge, continued pastoral care and a rich extra-curricular offer. As in Years 7 to 11, we seek to help Sixth Form students develop lively enquiring minds, apply themselves to tasks and acquire practical skills and knowledge that are valued both for their own sake and for the broader good of society. We like to see Latymer students continue into the Sixth Form, indeed almost all Year 11 students do continue into Year 12, as Latymer students by the end of Year 11 have usually shown the self-discipline, enthusiasm for learning and interest in their chosen subjects which are essential qualities for Sixth Form study.
- have the necessary GCSE background
- have a real interest in their studies
- have a record of meeting the specialist subjects’ requirements and coursework deadlines
- have a good record of attendance and punctuality
Progression isn’t automatic, there are two academic requirements: students must achieve at least numerical grade 7 (or equivalent) in the subjects they wish to study at A Level; and students must achieve at least 6 numerical grade 7's (or equivalent) overall in the GCSE examinations.
