Students in the Sixth Form study A Level and other Level 3 courses. 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.
