Joining the Sixth Form

Leweston accepts a number of pupils into Year 12 every year from outside of the school.

To request information about Leweston’s Sixth Form please complete our enquiry form and we will send you a prospectus and any other information that applies to your family, alternatively you can call our Admissions Team on 01963 210010 or email: admissions@leweston.dorset.sch.uk

Entry Requirements

The standard entry requirement for students entering Sixth Form is 6 GCSEs at grade 5 or above with a grade 7 or above in the subjects they wish to pursue at A Level or Pre-U. Entry is at the absolute discretion of the Head. We also require a satisfactory reference from the Head of a pupil’s current school.

Registration

Registration is the first step of the admissions process and secures a place for your child in their chosen year of entry. To register parents complete a Registration Form and pay a non-refundable fee of £100 for the Sixth Form.

Visit and Taster

We encourage all prospective Sixth Form entrants to come to our Sixth Form Information Evening in October where they can meet the staff and discuss their A Level, Pre-U and BTEC choices. They will also be invited to our Sixth Form Taster Day which takes place in the Autumn Term. This provides the opportunity to experience Sixth Form and trial some of the new courses on offer. Alternative ‘taster days’ can be arranged throughout the year.

Sixth Form candidates are of course welcome at all of our Open Days and parents are encouraged to arrange an individual visit to meet the Head, Head of Sixth Form and a tour of the school.

Offer and Acceptance of a place

A place is formally offered following taster and assessment. To accept the offer we ask you to pay a deposit and sign the parent contract which guarantees the place. A New Pupil’s Pack will then be sent to you ahead of your child’s start date.
