Who can apply to Didcot Sixth Form?

All students at Didcot Girls’ School and St Birinus School are welcome and encouraged to apply for a place in Didcot Sixth Form. We are also happy to welcome an increasing number of students from a range of other schools, including from abroad. With so much on offer, it is important that each student makes the right choice for them. We suggest they make good use of all the advice available, together with the details which follow. Each student should try to choose a programme which they will find interesting and rewarding, and above all, one which is likely to lead to success.

The Application Process

You should complete an application form detailing your predicted GCSE grades and the subjects you wish to study. The deadline for initial applications is Monday 17th December 2018. Whilst we will accept applications to join Didcot Sixth Form post this date, we will use those applications received by the deadline to determine which courses run and where the subjects are ‘blocked’.

Following a successful one-to-one interview with a Didcot Sixth Form member of staff (February/March 2019), you will be given a conditional offer based on your choice of subjects and predicted grades. When you have received your GCSE results you will be able to take up your place at Didcot Sixth Form, if you have met the conditions of that offer .If the grades that you receive are not as expected we will discuss the options that are available for you.

Please note that if insufficient interest is shown, some courses might be withdrawn. In this situation, we will contact individual students to consider alternative options.
