Sixth Form Admissions


We are delighted that you are considering applying to St Oscar Romero Sixth Form. Our online application is simple and straight-forward.


Before applying

It is important to spend some time researching the courses you are interested in studying before making a final decision. If you change your mind once you have begun your courses, it can be difficult to swap and still catch up. The key to success in the Sixth Form is enjoying the courses you have chosen. We recommend you discuss your preferences with any member of the Sixth Form Team including which subjects to study, the grades you will need, and the work experience or extra-curricular accomplishments which may be necessary. If, at this stage, you have only a general idea of what you wish to study, or are not sure yet, then consider subjects which you actively enjoy and are good at. Some degree courses require very specific subject combinations or grades. If you are considering going on to study medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, nursing/midwifery, or engineering, please check with our Sixth Form team to ensure that you are looking at appropriate subject combinations.


Course Requirements

At St Oscar Romero Catholic School, we have put a lot of thought into our entry requirements, as it is really important to us that students are studying courses that will allow them to flourish. In order to study Level 3 courses at A Level, students must achieve: Five or more 9-4 grades at GCSE including English and Maths. In addition, students will need to have an average point score of at least 5.3 if they would like to study A Levels. Where students do not have an average point score of 5.3, it will be expected that they study at least one BTEC course. Students will also need to meet the additional requirements for specific courses as shown on individual course pages on the school website.
