Sixth Form Admissions
It is very important that students carefully consider their subject choices, as these are made for the three subjects which form the core programme of study each student will follow for two years.
In A Level subjects, the course content studied in Year 12 is examined at the end of Year 13, along with the course content studied in Year 13.
BTEC subjects have a mix of internally assessed assignments and externally examined components, spread across both years.
General Admissions Requirements:
- Admission to study in Lodge Park Academy's Sixth Form courses is dependent upon:
- A minimum of 5 grades at level 9-5 at GCSE level and/or Merit at BTEC Level 2
- Grade 4 or above in either English language or literature and Mathematics
Specific minimum entry criteria for a particular course.
- Availability of places on a particular course. If a course is oversubscribed, consideration will be given to the possibility of an additional class.
- Minimum student numbers to make it viable to run a course. If a course is undersubscribed, financial and staffing implications will be considered, and the decision may be taken to withdraw the course.
- Each request is reviewed on an individual basis. If an applicant fails to meet the minimum course requirements, they may be given the option of pursuing alternative courses for which they do meet the minimum academic requirements.
- Where a student has not met the minimum requirements for English or Mathematics, a discussion will take place with a relevant member of staff regarding admission to Sixth Form in general and which specific courses are appropriate to access. Doing so will be conditional on re-taking GCSE English or Mathematics.
- Meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee suitability for a particular course. The first few weeks of the academic year are, therefore, a trial period for staff to assess each student's aptitude for the course and for students to confirm that each course is appropriate for them.
