Sixth Form Admissions

At Prince William School Sixth Form we consider every application on its merits.  We aim to offer every student in our Sixth Form a high quality and broad experience which will prepare them well for life beyond the Sixth Form. 

Applying for a place at Prince William School’s Sixth Form  

If you wish to make an application to start at the PWS sixth form in September 2023, please contact Zoe.Lewis@pws.emat.uk.

The admissions process and application form for entry in September 2024 will appear here in August 2023. .

Students in year 11 at Prince William School will be offered Careers Information, Advice and Guidance interviews to support them with making their choices and the Post-16 Team will examine subject choices and offer further guidance, should the need arise. 

Entry requirements

Students wishing to attend Prince William Sixth Form can follow one of two pathways:

Pathway 1: Students choose to study three A levels from a range of subjects.    For this pathway we require students to achieve the following:

  • A minimum grade 5 (or equivalent) in at least five subjects at Key Stage 4*.
  • A minimum grade 4 in GCSE Maths and English (in either Language of Literature).  

A few, very able students, may select to do four A levels.

Pathway 2: Students may choose to study a combination of BTEC and A level options.  For this pathway we require students to achieve the following:

  • A minimum grade 4 (or equivalent) in at least five subjects at Key Stage*.
  • A minimum grade 4 in GCSE Maths and English (in either Language of Literature).  

*Please note some A level courses will have a minimum grade requirement.  These are set out in our Sixth Form Prospectus and in the Sixth Form Courses and Qualifications section.

Offers of places

We aim to inform all applicants, both internal and external, the outcome of 

their application by the end of February 2023. Offers of places will be conditional on students gaining the necessary grades for the courses they have selected.

Taster Day

We invite student who have been offered places in our sixth form to come to a taster day in July at which they can meet others who are likely to be in the sixth form, get to find their way around the sixth form facilities, and take part in some taster lessons. This day helps students to ensure they have chosen the right combination of subjects for them and ‘firm up’ their choices.

Key Stage 4 results day and formal enrolment

Both internal and external students must complete and submit an enrolment form on either the KS4 results day (Thursday 24 August 2023) or the following day, Friday 25 August 2023, if they wish to take up the place offered to them.  They can do this either in person at the Sixth Form on either of those days 9am to 3pm, or by emailing the enrolment form to joanne.bennett@pws.emat.uk. Enrolment forms must be received by 3pm. on 25 August 2023 to be certain of securing a place.

If you do not get the KS4 results you need to get a place in our Sixth Form please speak to the Mrs Bennett, Head of Sixth Form, as soon as possible. She may be able to advise you about a combination of subjects that you could follow which would match your interests and aspirations.

Starting at the Sixth Form

Year 12 will start on Wednesday 6 September 2023.  Please arrive by 8.50am dressed in accordance with the sixth form dress code.

External candidates

The school will admit students from outside the traditional Prince William School catchment into Year 12. The maximum number of admissions for external candidates is 30.  Entry requirements for courses are the same as those for internal applicants. In the event that there are more than 30 external applicants, consideration will be given to the proximity of the applicant’s home to the college as measured in a straight line.
