Selective entry at Sixth Form refers to Sixth Form colleges and Sixth Forms attached to schools that have a competitive process of admissions for prospective students. As Sixth Form entry is for the final stage of secondary schooling, the admissions process is extremely thorough and tough.
Being an exceptional student is not enough for entry to the best Sixth Form colleges and schools. Schools look beyond academic excellence to students who can also make a positive impact on the institution they attend. Outstanding academic grades and a great character are both “must-haves” for Sixth Form selective entry.
