Sixth Form Applications 2021

I am delighted that you are considering Sale Grammar School for your A-Level studies. We are a diverse and popular Sixth Form where we endeavour not only for academic excellence, but also to holistically support our students through their A-Level journey and their progression to university or the world of work. Our Sixth Form is a happy one, where all students are valued and our Year 12 and Year 13 students play an active role in the daily life of Sale Grammar School.

We welcome applications to our Sixth Form from our current Year 11 students and also from those studying for their GCSEs at other schools. Information about our admissions criteria and admissions policy can be found in the Sixth Form Admissions section of this website.

At the end of January, we would usually hold our Sixth Form Information Evening, which focuses on the different A-Level subjects we offer so that students are equipped to make informed decisions about the subjects they want to study. We do not open applications until after this event, so that we know students are certain of their choices and know exactly what the different A-Level subjects involve.

Because of the current situation, we cannot hold our Sixth Form Information Evening as normal. Instead, we will be posting a video for every subject we offer at A-Level on our website in January, each hosted by the relevant Head of Department, who will discuss the content of their A-Level and provide you with an overview of A-Level teaching in that subject. Please note that there will also be an online leaflet for every subject to support the video presentations which you will be able to access and read. Additional videos will be hosted by myself and our Head Boy and Girl on life in the Sixth Form, our Academic and Personal Enrichment Programmes and the application process itself. These resources will also go live on our website in January.

Please note that the online Sixth Form Application Form for September 2021 entry will open on this page on Monday 25th January 2021 at 9.00 am.

I very much look forward to reviewing your applications later on in the academic year and once again thank you for your interest in our Sixth Form.

With warm wishes,

Miss Abbey Mattox

Assistant Headteacher – Sixth Form
