Sixth Form Admissions

BGS Sixth Form offers pupils an outstanding academic education, a greater sense of independence and the best possible preparation for university for life.  External applicants are warmly welcomed, along with internal applicants, to our successful, friendly and high-performing Sixth Form. Applicants are expected to achieve a minimum of 7 GCSEs at Grade 6 or above, with at least a Grade 6 or preferably a Grade 7 or above in any subject they are considering studying at A Level.

Places are normally offered to those whom the School believes are capable of successfully undertaking a course of 3 or 4 A Levels. You will be welcomed into School for an interview with the Head of Sixth Form, have the opportunity to meet teachers and pupils in the subjects you are considering studying at A Level, have a personalised tour of our facilities and perhaps spend a taster day here, if you would like to do so. Our pupils are very friendly and very much like to welcome new people to the School!

UCAS preparation and university guidance are exceptional for BGS Sixth Formers, with the majority obtaining places on their first or second choice courses at university. Thanks to the quality of teaching, high aspirations, leadership opportunities, the extraordinary number of enriching activities offered beyond the standard curriculum and outstanding UCAS/careers advice, BGS Sixth Formers really are well prepared to take on the challenges of University and beyond.
