Sixth Form Applications 2021

We are delighted that you are considering Sale Grammar School Sixth Form.

As we are not able to run our Post 16 Information Evening in school as calendared for Thursday 28th January, each department has produced an audio PowerPoint for their subject which can be found in the ‘Subject Information for 2021 Applicants’ page in the Sixth Form area of the school website. Please note that these PowerPoints are not a ‘live’ event, but have been placed on the website so that they are available for prospective students to view online. Each of these PowerPoints provide details about the courses that are on offer to help you finalise your choice of A-level subjects. Additionally, there is also a leaflet for each subject in the same area of the website for you to read.

These presentations are now available on our website for you to browse. We absolutely encourage you to look at the PowerPoints for all the subjects you are interested in studying at A-level before you complete the Sixth Form Application Form so that you are making informed choices about the subjects you wish to study.

Therefore, once you have made the final decision about your A-Level choices, if you would like to apply for a place in our Sixth Form for September 2021, you will need to submit an online Sixth Form Application Form.

Application Form

The Sixth Form Application Form is available on this page of our school website from Friday 29th January 2021.


Option Blocks

The Year 12 Option Blocks show which subjects are available in each block; you will need to make your subject choices from these option blocks. The Sixth Form Application Form is available for you to complete at the bottom of this page.

You need to study three subjects from five possible option blocks. The remaining two blocks can be free. You may, however, choose an additional fourth subject to study at AS Level or an Academic Enrichment Course (Core Maths, EPQ or Perspectives on Science) if you so wish. Please note that you cannot choose more than one subject from any one option block.

If your choice of subjects does not fit into the option blocks as published, you should select alternative choices that do fit in the option blocks. There is then a comments section available on the Application Form where you can state what combination of subjects you would have preferred had the option blocks allowed.

We look at all applications together and where it is possible to accommodate alternatives to the published option blocks, we will do our very best to do so, but please be aware that this cannot be guaranteed.


Application Deadline

The deadline for online applications is Friday 26th February 2021.


Late Applications

Applications received after this date will be treated as a LATE application and will not be considered until after all other applications have been processed in August, and only if places are still available.

Late applications should be made directly to the Sixth Form Team - please contact for further details of the late application process.
