Sixth Form Admissions

Admission to Prendergast Sixth Form - September 2020

We welcome applications from Year 11 students from the Leathersellers' Federation of Schools and from external applicants. For information about our curriculum offer and entry requirements, please see our 'KS5 Subject Handbook 2020-22'.

At Prendergast Sixth Form we strongly recommend that students have a GCSE Average Points Score (APS) of at least 5.2 if they wish to study A Levels.  This is in addition to the specific entry requirements for each subject.  If a student does not achieve an APS of 5.2, they will be able to follow a BTEC programme at the Sixth Form.  BTEC courses require an APS of 4.2, along with the entry requirements for the specific subjects.  Students need to have achieved at least a grade 4 in Mathematics and English Language to enrol in the Sixth Form.  

New Media course for 2020-22
BTEC Level 3 Extended Certificate in Digital Film and Video Production

Post-16 learners looking to progress to higher or degree apprenticeships, employment or further education or training, will develop skills in areas such as single camera techniques, scriptwriting and film editing.

If you have queries about sixth form admissions or about your application, please contact the sixth form administrator, Nicki Mason, on
