Weavers Academy

Entry Into The Sixth Form

We have to be sure that you will be able to cope with the academic demands of Sixth Form study.  

Students are required to have at least B grades and above in the subjects they intend to study in the Sixth Form.
Decisions about entry into the Sixth Form are never based solely on a student’s academic profile, before offering a place we also consider an individual’s contribution to school life, behavioural and attendance record, as well as the ability to benefit from two years of study with us.
External applicants to the Sixth Form, in addition to the academic requirements above, will be invited to interview by the Head of Sixth.
Conditional offers are based on predicted grades; actual places are not confirmed until GCSE results are announced. This may mean that some courses become oversubscribed and if there are more applicants than places available then we will allocate places according to the over- subscription criteria below:
  • GCSE point score
  • Oversubscription on a course
  • Looked after children or other extenuating circumstances which we feel warrant special consideration. (See application form).
  • Siblings
  • Distance
Borderline cases will be looked at closely. In such cases the general level of academic achievement will be looked at, as well as an estimate of the student’s potential and ability to cope with A-Level courses. 
Weavers Academy is an equal opportunities Sixth Form.
