How do I get in?
Entry is by application form, which is available here. You will then have a short interview with the Head or Deputy Head of Sixth Form. This is mostly aimed at making sure that you have chosen appropriate course for you. If you wish to do four A levels, you will need five or more GCSEs at C grade or above (you will probably need B grades for your chosen subjects). We will always try to look positively on any application made to us.
What if I currently attend a school other than Sheldon?
You are most welcome to apply. Every year many students come to Sheldon Sixth Form from other local secondary schools. They settle well at Sheldon and enjoy their studies here.
Will I get my first choice of courses?
The vast majority of students get to study their four first-choice courses, a few get three out of four. As Sheldon Sixth form has grown we have been able to offer a lot more choice.
What should I be doing now?
You should be talking to your subject teachers about A levels that interest you, talking to your tutor, researching careers in the careers library, and looking at university courses to see what the entry requirements are. A good place to start is the Ucas website
How should I choose courses?
Most students fall into two camps on this one. Either choose courses that you need for a specific career path (that's why early research is essential) or choose courses because you enjoy them.
