You need to apply online through Kent Choices. You will need to login. You will receive your username and password from your school.
Make your application and submit it. We will process it and reply to you so check your application dashboard regularly.
We will invite you to an interview and ask about your plans, subjects and we’ll ask to see your predicted grades. You need to familiarize yourself with our entry requirements.
Applications open after October half-term and close January 2020.
For internal applicants, who have been given a conditional offer, enrollment to Sixth Form takes place on GCSE Results Day (Thursday 20th August 2020) from 10:00am. Please check your school email for further details.
For external applicants, who have been given a conditional offer, enrollment takes place on Friday 21st August. You will be contacted via email regarding the next steps in the enrollment process.
Students must be able to study a minimum of 3 subjects at Level 3 to join the Sixth Form and to do so, they need to match the specific subject entry requirements. (The entry requirements are available to download below).
If a student has not secured a GCSE in English or Mathematics at grade 4 or above they must re-sit the GCSE again in Sixth Form. This is the same across all Sixth Forms.
Every attempt will be made to offer the students their first choice of course, but it must be realised that occasionally courses are over-subscribed and in this case academic criteria will be used to select students for the course.
Entry requirements for our sixth form are based on UK GCSEs, Scottish Standard Grades, or internationally recognised IGCSES accredited by either CIE or Edexcel. If you have studied outside the UK and have different qualifications, you should apply to UK NARIC (www.naric.org.uk) to obtain a statement of comparability which will enable the school to assess your eligibility.
The option blocks will be released once SGS’ internal deadline has closed in January for we then match as closely as possible to the students wishes. This will be made available for download as soon as it is constructed. When released please remember that all subjects can only be taken if you match the entry requirements. Further important points to note about the blocks:
Students must select 3 subjects in total; 4 subjects can be studied.
You can only select 1 subject from each option block.
The EPQ is an enrichment qualification; it is not counted as 1 of the main subjects.
* Sport is a BTEC Level 3 qualification equivalent to 1 A Level.
All students wishing to apply for Sixth Form will be interviewed initially by Saint George’s Leadership Team between January – April and again in August after their results are known.
Guidance will be given at each stage about appropriate courses. We take great care matching students to their most suitable programme of study.
