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 November, 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 

We will be holding our annual Sixth Form Information Evening on Thursday 20 October 2022, from 7.00 pm  to 9.00 pm.

The evening will provide a strong insight into the exciting subjects offered at Sixth Form, and will help students seriously consider their next steps. You will have the opportunity to talk to our Head, Neal Parker, Director of Sixth Form, Emma Thomas, our 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 Emma Thomas will also be delivering a short presentation to all in attendance.

If you would like to attend this event, please fill out this form. Further information will be sent to you ahead of the event, via the email address you provide in the form.

If you would like to arrange a taster morning or an individual tour of the school, or if you would like more information about our Sixth Form, please email the Admissions Team on registrar@kes.hants.sch.uk.
