Any student who attends Swanwick Hall School that meets our entry requirements is entitled to apply for a place at Swanwick Hall School Sixth Form via our expression of interest form. This form starts the process where we will work with students to ensure that they are pursuing a range of choices that will enable them to follow any career aspirations they have.

Through the Autumn, expressions of interest will be invited and in late 2019/early 2020, students will be invited to a meeting with a senior member of staff to explore their reasons for their choices. Following this meeting, offers of a place will be sent, based on an expectation of meeting the official entry requirements.

In the summer, when results become available, students will be given a time when they can come in and sign up for the sixth form, ready for the start of courses in the first week of September.

A copy of our Sixth Form Prospectus is available to download here.
