Sixth Form Admissions
Why choose Hardenhuish?
We have a proven track record of fantastic examination results across a wide range of subjects. Our first class, purpose built, specialist accommodation, including top quality study facilities foster a friendly and professional environment where students are valued and treated as adults.
Alongside academic commitments, there are many opportunities to get involved in the wider life of the school and the local community.
Exceptional pastoral support, advice and guidance from a dedicated, specialist Sixth Form team.
Enrolment in the Sixth Form is subject to achieving the minimum entry requirements of two GCSE grade 4s and three GCSE grade 5s, including at least a grade 4 in English Language or Literature and at least a grade 4 in Mathematics. In addition, there may be subject specific requirements and/or the need to have studied the subject at GCSE. Please see page 5 of the prospectus for this information or click here.
What can you study?
Because our sixth form is large, we are able to offer a wide range of courses and accommodate the vast majority of subject combinations. We expect you to complete:
- Three or four A Level subjects of your choice.
- An additional qualification as part of the Sixth Form Core Programme, with a choice of at least one from the Extended Project Qualification, Level 3 Core Mathematics or the Level 3 Sports Leaders Award.
- Our independent study skills induction programme, followed by leadership and community activities. With the reforms in A Levels now embedded, it is our expectation that most students will not take AS examinations at the end of Year 12 since they don’t count towards the final A Level grade. This will enable students to focus on developing the higher level synoptic and analytical skills required to achieve the best grades on the two year A Level courses.
If you are interested in applying for a place at the Sixth Form, we strongly recommend you attend our live Virtual Open Evening at 6 pm on 3 December 2020. The Open Evening provides the opportunity to hear live presentations from the Sixth Form team and current students, and to see our Sixth Form Centre and other facilities.

The online application forms will be published here on the 3rd December and should be completed by 10 December 2020 (however, late applications will be accepted).
All students applying to Sixth Form will be invited to a guidance meeting with a member of the Sixth Form Team to discuss their application, where advice will be given about subject combinations. Students will be contacted after their meeting and provided with further information. Our Sixth Form has an enviable reputation for successful applications to top universities, in part due to the advice given at the application stage.
