To gain entry into Sixth Form you are required to meet the following criteria:
• A minimum of 7 different subjects at GCSE level, grade C and above, normally to include English Language and Mathematics, giving a total score of 11 points where A* = 4, A = 3, B = 2 and C = 1.
• Applicants must have a positive record of conduct, attendance and punctuality for the previous five years.
Criteria for all extra places made available by the Department of Education for admission into Year 13.
The Department of Education may, in response to a request from a school, increase the number of pupils the school can admit into Year 13. Places which become available in this way shall be allocated only to pupils who meet the essential criteria for entry as set out above and shall be allocated in the order determined by the following criteria:
• Pupils who have most recently completed Year 12 in the Collegiate Grammar School or Portora Royal School.
• Pupils from other schools who cannot pursue their post-16 course choices at a suitable school without undertaking an unreasonable journey (i.e. a journey that by public transport would be over an hour from where they young person lives). If DE finds that no other suitable school may provide all of the post-16 courses those pupils wishes to pursue, then DE will agree a school’s request for an extra place.
