Sixth Form admissions

Admission to sixth form in Surrey secondary schools

How to select sixth forms to apply for

You can find out which secondary schools in Surrey have a sixth form by using our Surrey schools directory or by viewing our booklet. This booklet also gives you information on the admission criteria for each school and the minimum number of places that will be available to external applicants. The admission criteria will be used by each school to prioritise applicants if there more applications from external students than places available.

Internal students

Each Surrey school will welcome applications for entry to their sixth form from students who are attending the school in year 11 in 2021/22 and wish to enter the sixth form in September 2022.

External students

Each Surrey school also accepts applications for entry to their sixth forms from external candidates who are attending another school for year 11 during 2021/22.

Entry requirements for both internal and external students

Entry to the sixth form is subject to a student having achieved the entry requirements for the programme of subjects/courses they wish to pursue whether vocational or academic. Students should refer to each school's Sixth Form Prospectus for further details of individual subject requirements. Individual subjects may be limited in the number of students they are able to accommodate.

How to apply for a sixth form place

Each Surrey school with a sixth form manages their own applications. In order to apply for a sixth form place at a Surrey school you should contact each school direct. If you wish to apply for a sixth form place at a school outside Surrey, you should contact the school for more information on how to apply.
