How To Apply

STEP 1: Sixth Form Open Evening

All students interested in joining our Sixth Form are invited to our Sixth Form Information Evening in October. This is a great opportunity for you to visit the school, meet our expert A-level teachers and most importantly speak to our current students about their experiences in the Sixth Form at Blue Coat.

STEP 2: The Application Form

The next stage in the process involves completing our online application form. This involves telling us a little bit about yourself, submitting your grades and indicating which A Level subjects you would like to study at Blue Coat.

STEP 3: Advice and Guidance Meeting

We will then invite you to an advice and guidance meeting to discuss your future ambitions and subject choices. We know that choosing your A-level subjects isn’t always easy and we want to make sure that you are making the right decisions for you and your future.

STEP 4: An Email Home

We will write to you to tell you whether you have been successful in securing a provisional place.

STEP 5: Pre-Enrolment

Successful applicants will be invited to attend a pre-enrolment event in late June/early July. You will also have the opportunity to join our remote taster sessions which are run by our expert A-level teachers. These sessions are designed to give you an introduction to your chosen subjects, offering support and guidance about what you can do over the summer to give yourself the best possible start in the Sixth Form at Blue Coat.

STEP 6: Results & Enrolment

When you receive your GCSE results in August you will complete your enrolment with us before starting your studies in September.
