We want to ensure that students who study in the Sixth Form will be able to meet the demands of their chosen subjects and achieve excellent outcomes. We also must make sure that our values and expectations are right for students and that they feel they are in the best place to be successful in their studies. Below is a number of important pieces of information on how to apply to join the Sixth Form, whether you are a current George Abbot student or coming to us from another school.
The application process for the George Abbot Sixth Form begins in October each year. Both external and current George Abbot students are required to submit an application form in December and will have an interview with the Sixth Form in January. This process is conducted early in the year to ensure that we can accommodate every student’s subject choices and give them the best advice on which subjects to take.
The links below will take you to a document outlines each stage of the application process for the current academic year.
