Sixth Form Admissions

Admissions Process

2018 Sixth Form applications are now open. To submit an application please complete the subject of interest form and submit it to Mrs Price

External admissions also welcome.


At Waingels, in line with most other educational institutions, we are moving towards a two-year programme of study. It will be expected that students will carry all of their subjects through to Year 13. Students can design their own course from their chosen subjects, combining BTEC Level 3 and A Level options, which offer a varied approach to learning.

Our Level 3 pathways include:

  • Three A Levels.
  • Two A Levels and a Level 3 BTEC.
  • Two Level 3 BTECs and an A level

These  are  all  two  year  courses  with  assessments  at  the  end of the two-year  period.

*All BTEC Level 3 courses contain an element of examination.

To view the Sixth Form Entry Criteria please click here.

Transition Process

We accept application from both current Waingels students and external students, subject to meeting our entry criteria. The criteria we apply for entry onto each pathway is designed to ensure students are most appropriately matched to the courses they are interested in.

Students will have the opportunity to explore the options available to them at Sixth Form in a variety of ways. In November students will have the opportunity to visit the Sixth Form and ask questions of current Year 12 and 13 students. They will learn about the facilities and privileges that Sixth Form students can avail of. This is followed by the first of two open evenings.

Powerpoint of Information

Key Stage 5 Open Evenings

Our first Open Evening takes place in November. This is an opportunity to hear from Mr Bartlett and the Sixth Form leadership team about the Sixth Form and find out about the variety of subjects that we offer. This is done in a market place style so students can visit a variety of stalls to gain information about their options.

Our second evening takes place after the option blocks are published. This allows students to narrow down their subject choices through attending talks about each of their chosen subjects.

Following from our two open evenings students will be offered a conditional place for the courses that are a best fit for their choices and ability. This will then be confirmed on GCSE results day. 

If, for whatever reason, a student wants to make amendments to their subject choices or where they have not met the criteria a meeting will be arranged with a member of the Sixth Form leadership team or SLT to discuss their options. The careers advisor will also be present on results day.

In order to find out more about what Waingels’ Sixth Form have to offer and our entry requirements please take a look at our Sixth Form prospectus. You can also find out about the subjects we have to offer here.

If you require further information please email our Sixth Form Learning Manager, Mrs Price
