Sixth Form Admissions
Each year, we welcome new students to join King Edward’s in Lower Sixth for their A Levels. We offer a range of 26 subjects, all academically rigorous, and all taught in small groups of around ten students by specialist teaching staff.
After attending our annual Sixth Form Information Evening in October, applicants are able to submit their application to us. In March, senior members of staff and subject specialists will interview prospective candidates. As a result of these interviews, and on the basis of a candidate’s predicted GCSE results, either a conditional or unconditional offer of a place may be made.
A limited number of bursaries are available and these are dependent on individual family financial circumstances. There are also some non-means tested scholarships for students from the maintained sector, who plan to study Chemistry or Biology.

Sixth Form Information Evening
Our Sixth Form Information Evening is taking place on the evening of Thursday 21 October, 7.00 pm- 9.00 pm.
This event will provide a strong insight into the exciting subjects offered at Sixth Form, and help students seriously consider their next steps. You will have the opportunity to talk to our Head, Neal Parker, Director of Sixth Form, Nick Culver, A Level subject teachers, the careers team and of course some of our current Sixth Formers to chat about life at King Edward’s in and out of the classroom. Neal Parker and Nick Culver will also be delivering a short presentation to all in attendance.
