Thank you for your interest in Highdown School Sixth Form. Whether you are already a Highdown student in Year 11 or a student from another local or international school, you will be assured of personal attention to ensure we match the best curriculum offer to your skills and ambitions.  The links on the left-hand side of this page will give you information on the courses we offer, the entry criteria, and useful information regarding our induction process.

Before you complete our online application form, please refer to the Sixth Form Prospectus below (hard copies available from school office) and course information.  Any additional requirements are listed under the individual subject descriptions.

The new Sixth Form prospectus will be available on Thursday 5 November 2020, the date of our Open Evening.

Entry to the Sixth Form is subject to successful completion of your current/previous course of study. An interview will take place to discuss options and academic entry requirements for particular courses to ensure that students are matched to the most appropriate courses. Apart from the academic qualifications needed for entry into the Sixth Form, we expect all students to demonstrate a commitment to consistent hard work and a positive attitude to all aspects of Sixth Form life.  Students' progress is monitored by termly reports to students and parents.
