Applying for a place in the sixth form

Bryanston’s aim is to admit a mixture of pupils who will integrate happily and successfully into the existing community, enhance its balance of ability and talent and make full use of the opportunities the School offers.

Pupils entering the sixth form are expected to achieve a minimum of 40 points at GCSE and most heads of department recommend at least a grade 7 at GCSE for subjects relevant to sixth form study.

How to apply

Admissions are through standard entry, or through academic, music or sport & scholarships and applications are accepted one year in advance, i.e. at the beginning of a candidate’s final GCSE year. Before submitting an application, candidates may attend one of two Information Afternoons held during the first half of the autumn term; these offer an opportunity to see the School and meet members of staff.

Every pupil is encouraged to explore a breadth of opportunities in their first year at Bryanston, to enable them to discover their individual academic strengths and interests. This allows all pupils to experience a widerange of subjects before deciding, with the support of their tutor, on a programme of study for GCSE.
