Admission into Sixth Form

The Governors will be prepared to accept an additional 20 boys into Year 12. There is no limit for the number of students transferring from the school’s own Year 11 cohort. For entry into Year 12, a pupil is required to achieve a minimum C grade (or Grade 4) in at least six GCSE subjects including Mathematics and English Language. In addition, he must reach the published requirements for entry onto his proposed course of study. Requirements for individual subjects are stated in the Sixth Form Information Booklet 2018.

If applications should exceed the number of places available, priority will be given to Year 11 pupils currently at Ermysted’s, then after the admission of boys who have undergone statutory assessment and for whom a final statement of special educational needs (SEN) has been issued which specifically names Ermysted’s Grammar School, to boys from other schools who live closest to the School. Distance will be measured in a straight line from their residence to the main entrance of the School using an electronic mapping system.

If the Governors decide not to allocate a place in any school year, parents have the right to appeal against the decision. An independent panel will hear appeals.

Admission into Ermysted’s Grammar School is at the discretion of the Governing Body.
