Sixth Form Pathways 

The minimum entry requirements for Sixth Form admission to Ribston Hall High School for entry September 2019 are six GCSEs at Grade 5 or above including English and Maths.

Due to the rigorous demands of the new A Levels, there are additional entry requirements for each subject, please check this information carefully in the table outlined below.

We recommend that students study three A Level subjects, this can be combined with the Extended Project Qualification which we strongly recommend for all students to support Higher Education applications (particularly for Oxbridge and Russell Group institutions).  It is possible to study four A Level subjects although this is not required for University Applications.

Please contact the school if you would like more information relating to our common programmes of study.
