Sixth Form Admissions

Admission to the Sixth Form is based on academic criteria. (See PDF 'Sixth Form Admissions Explained'.) All students will need to complete an application form: students in Year 11 at Bishop Stopford School will receive conditional offers, and students from other schools will have their predicted grades taken into account before any offer is made.

40% of students join our sixth form from other schools, and they have the opportunity to visit during a working day prior to making an application. There is a sixth form code of conduct and dress code.


Sixth Form Information Evening:

This includes a 'Subject Fair' open to all prospective students and their parents. The BSS6 Open Evening will takes place in November. 

Sixth Form Open Afternoons:

Open afternoons take place in January.

Places for Open Afternoons should be booked via email to Mrs Marsh

The deadline for applications this academic year is Friday 31st January 2020.


After GCSE exams there is a Sixth Form Induction Course held in our Sixth Form Centre where students are introduced to the courses available and the Sixth Form. There is an opportunity to discuss with staff and current Sixth Form Student Heads all aspects of sixth form life.


On GCSE results day students will have the final information required to decide on their future. The Sixth Form Team will be available to discuss results on the day and the following day. The GCSE results form will be available to download on this page, once completed please return to 82,69,83,85,76,84,83,64,66,73,83,72,79,80,83,84,79,80,70,79,82,68,46,67,79,77.
