Sixth Form Admissions
Whickham school provides a breadth of courses for Post-16 (Sixth Form) students to study. The majority of the Sixth form students transfer from Year 11, but we have places available for external students.
The entry requirements for Whickham Sixth Form are largely dependent on the course students opt to study, each student will have a meeting to discuss the best route and options for them. The requirements for each subject are the same for both our internal and external students.
In general, students wishing to access Advanced Level courses must possess a minimum of 4 GCSEs at grade 4 or above. However some inidivudal qualifications have higher entry requirements.
