Sixth Form Entry
Thank you for considering Christ’s Hospital for your sixth form education. Our over-riding aim is to ensure that our sixth form students realise their full potential, wherever their talents, interests and ambitions lie. We hope that they will leave CH as well-rounded, confident young men and women who are able to tackle life’s challenges positively and make valuable contributions to society.
Over 98% of pupils from Christ’s Hospital continue onto higher education, either immediately after Year 13 or following a year out. In 2018 out of the cohort of 120 pupils choosing to apply through UCAS, 73% were able to take up either their first choice or insurance offer. Out of those successes, 40% went to prestigious universities including Bristol, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Imperial College, KCL, LSE, Oxford, and UCL.
Each year we invite prospective sixth form students to a taster day, when they can choose two subjects to ‘try out’, as well as meeting current students and have the opportunity of discovering all CH has to offer.
All applicants should be on course to achieve a minimum of 4 A (level 7 grades) and 4 B (level 6 grades). The A grades should be in the subjects they wish to study at A level or for the IB course.
For sixth form entry in September 2020 a completed application form needs to be with us by 25 October 2019.
All applicants will be contacted and invited for an initial computer based assessment on Saturday 16 November 2019. Following this, selected candidates will be invited for an interview on Saturday 7 December 2019.
All applicants wishing to be assessed for a scholarship need to let us know which subject they would like to be considered for. This should be a subject they would like to study at A level or for the IB. Scholarship tests will take place at Christ’s Hospital week commencing 2 December 2019. (Dates tbc).
Means-tested bursaries are also available for students new to the sixth form.
All sixth form students at CH have access to our careers centre with library, breakout pods, lecture hall and networking area.
We offer a unique experience for our sixth form students and academic study is combined with a diverse co-curricular programme which offers an enormous range of activities, clubs and societies including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Young Enterprise, Model United Nations, CCF, chess, debating, public speaking and so much more.
The university application process is managed by Mrs Carrie Cherry, Head of Sixth Form, and a team of specialist tutors. The Careers Department run by Miss Helen-Claire Burt organises a whole range of careers events hosted throughout the year, including professional lunches and networking events.
