Sixth Form Admissions

Every year we welcome students from other independent and maintained schools into our Sixth Form, together with present Year 11s at QEH.  From September 2017, we also welcome girls to study at QEH Sixth Form.

Anyone wishing to enter the QEH Sixth Form from another school is strongly encouraged to come for an individual tour and a taster day. Please contact Carolyn Matthews, our Admissions Registrar to arrange this on 0117 930 3068 or at

Each applicant is considered individually.  Our entry requirements are a minimum of six grade 6 at GCSE (or grade B's where IGCSE's have been taken) with a grade 7 (or A) in subjects taken at (I)GCSE that are to be continued to A Level. 

What you should be doing

Whether you are already at QEH or come from outside, we urge you to take advantage of all guidance offered in preparing you for Sixth Form life next year.  Think carefully about what you want from your post-GCSE education and whether the Sixth Form at QEH will meet your expectations.

Work closely with your subject teachers, form teacher, Heads of Sixth Form and also present Sixth Form students to find out as much information as possible.

Whatever subject you are considering at A-level, talk to the Head of Department concerned and look carefully at our Sixth Form Prospectus so that you make the right course decisions before it is too late. Be honest about where your strengths and weaknesses lie - predicted GCSE results are often not your best guide!

For existing pupils in Year 11 wishing to enter the Sixth Form there is an ‘Introduction Morning’ which will start these enquiries, along with careers advice and information gathered from the Parents’ evening.
