Sixth Form (ages 16-18)

Admissions Update Autumn 2020

One of the best ways to get to know Felsted is to visit during an Open Day, but during this time of Covid-19 related restrictions unfortunately we will be unable to welcome large groups of visitors during the Autumn Term. However, we will be holding weekly Open Morning Experiences on-site for small groups throughout September to December. 

We have filmed a number of virtual tours and will also be holding virtual Open Events throughout the term. We encourage you to explore these to give you an initial insight into life at Felsted. Our Admissions Team are also available to answer any queries you may have.

We understand what a big decision it is for you to choose the right school for your Sixth Form studies. We aim to make the process as simple as possible.

Please view our admissions videos and procedures for Yr 12 entry, found at the bottom of this page and contact us at any stage if you would like further clarification.

Sixth Form Entry Procedures

Entry to the Sixth Form is based on a Verbal Reasoning assessment, interview and a confidential report from a student’s current school (an additional mathematics test is requested for potential IB students). For students where English is not their first language, an English assessment is also required. If a student does well in the assessment, they will be invited by the Headmaster to apply for a Sixth Form Academic Scholarship in two subjects of their choice.

All candidates are expected to achieve a minimum of 32 points across their best six subjects at GCSE (or equivalent), plus a grade 6 in subjects they wish to study at A Level or at Higher Level in the IB Diploma.

Please note, for pupils who attend HMC schools, you can only sit the assessments from November and places cannot be offered before 1st December.

Admissions Steps: Year 12 Entry

 

Felsted provides the perfect environment to study. There are also so many opportunities to expand your interests and learn new skills, providing much needed balance to academic life.

I just wanted to say that our connections with Felsted have been outstanding since the first time we contacted you which has made us more confident it is the right school for our son. Having worked in the service industry for many years, building a unique culture and core purpose and executing this across all parent pupil touch-points takes effort as well as belief in what you are doing. This is what helped finalise our decision over another leading school.
