Leweston accepts a number of new pupils into Year 12 every year. 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. Entry is at the discretion of the Head.
Prospective Sixth Form students are welcome at all of our Open events or to join us for a visit. This enables you to meet the Head, Head of Sixth Form and teaching staff as well as tour the school. There is also a dedicated Sixth Form Information Evening which takes places in October for both existing and prospective students.
Sixth Form applicants are welcome to join us for personal taster days throughout the school year and this can be combined with a night in boarding for those interested.
In February of Year 11 the Deputy Head will ask for your Sixth Form subject choices so that the timetable can be prepared. Both he and the Head of Sixth Form are available to offer advice. At an appropriate point we will request a reference from your current school.
Offers are typically made by way of a letter to parents. Offers may be open for acceptance for a limited time only. You will be asked to secure your place by completing the Acceptance Form and paying a deposit (which is returned against your final school bill). Joining information will then be sent to you ahead of your start date. All Sixth Form entrants will be invited to join our induction events in June.
If you have questions about joining the Sixth Form please visit our Knowledge Base, a library of frequently asked questions which can tell you more about the admissions process as well as life at the school.
