Guidance for external applicants wishing to join the Sixth Form 2020

We would like to take the opportunity to remind you of the process that all external applicants for places in the Weald of Kent’s Sixth Form need to follow on Thursday 20 August 2020:

  1. If you have met entry requirements and wish to be considered for a Sixth Form place at the Weald of Kent Grammar School, then you need to telephone the school by 11am on Thursday 20 August to confirm this.
  2. You will need to confirm during the telephone conversation that you have attained at least a Grade 5 in either GCSE English Language or GCSE English Literature and at least a Grade 5 in GCSE Mathematics.
  3. You will need to confirm that your average GCSE point score, which is comprised of your highest grade from either GCSE English Language or GCSE English Literature, your Mathematics GCSE grade and the next six highest grades from your GCSEs is at least 5.5.  You can work out the GCSE average point score by adding the eight grade numbers together and dividing by eight.
  4. You will be asked to confirm the three A Level subjects, plus a reserve choice, that you would like to study and you will be asked to confirm that you have met the entry requirements for each of those A Level subjects.

Should the school be oversubscribed, then our Sixth Form oversubscription criteria (in line with the school’s Admissions Policy) will be applied. Offers of confirmed places in the Weald of Kent’s Sixth Form will be sent out on Friday 21 August. Year 12 Induction Day is on Wednesday 2 September starting at 8.45am. Successful applicants will need to bring confirmation of their actual GCSE grades with them on the 2 September.
