Kendrick School welcomes new students into its Sixth Form.
Kendrick School is a state funded selective girls’ school with Academy status and offers a 3 or 4 AS/A level pathway in the following courses:
Art & Design ● Biology ● Chemistry ● Drama & Theatre Studies ● Economics ● English Literature ● French ● Geography ● German ● History ● Latin ● Mathematics ● Further Mathematics ● Music ● Physical Education ● Physics ● Philosophy ● Sociology ● plus the Extended Project Qualification
Online applications open on Friday 9th November 2018 and the deadline for applying for a place is Friday 25th January 2019.
For entry into Kendrick School Sixth Form, applicants will normally have to satisfy the following minimum conditions:
- 8 GCSEs grades A* - B or 9-5 two of which must be English Language and Mathematics and all should be from full GCSE courses.
- At least a grade B or 6 at GCSE in the subjects to be studied at AS/A-level.
- Grade B or 6 or above in the Higher Tier is an entry requirement for Mathematics and/or Science AS/A level courses. Students who have taken Foundation Tier GCSE courses in Mathematics and Sciences (rather than Higher Tier) are unlikely to have covered all the appropriate topics from which they can move on to A-level in the context of this school.
- To study a Science subject it would be necessary for an applicant to have achieved at least a Grade B or 6 in both Higher Tier Science and Additional Science or Separate Science GCSEs.
- Students who wish to study Further Mathematics must achieve at Grade A*-A or 9-7 in GSCE Mathematics.
- Students would be expected to have studied GCSE in subjects they wish to study at A-level. In the case of Economics and Sociology where the subjects may not have been studied at GCSE level, Grade B or 6 in English Literature and a Humanity would be required as a minimum condition of entry to the course.
- Students living overseas at the time of application and not taking GCSE courses must provide evidence of the equivalence of their externally taken qualifications to GCSE by an official organisation (for example NARIC).
- Students who are Home Schooled will be asked to provide a reference and predicted GCSE grades from a professional body. In the absence of a reference they may be asked to sit mock GCSE examinations at Kendrick School.
