Sixth Form Pathways 

The minimum entry requirements for Sixth Form admission to Ribston Hall High School for entry September 2021 are:

  • Five full course GCSE at Grade 6, in separate subjects at Grade 6 or higher (Core and Additional Science count as separate subjects. Short course GCSEs do not count towards the full course GCSE requirements).
  • Students should have a minimum of Grade 5 in both English Language and Mathematics.
  • Students should meet individual subject requirements as described in the prospectus in their chosen subjects if previously taken at GCSE level, or a relevant subject as specified in the Sixth Form Information Booklet.

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.

Admissions Review 

Internal and new students who have missed the entry criteria may request consideration for a place by the School’s Admissions Review Group who may accept or reject applications.

The School’s Admissions Review Group will also consider the case for all applicants who have previously been in receipt of Pupil Premium but have not met the published admission criteria. 

The Admissions Review Group meets to look at individual cases where there are extenuating circumstances which may have influenced performance.  This group will also examine some cases where a student has not gained the grades to take a particular subject.

For the Admissions Review Group to consider a case we need:

The form, GCSE results and all evidence need to reach the Sixth Form Team by Friday 13th August at 12pm.  Further appeals meetings will take place after this date should there be a requirement to do so.

Please submit the form online and email your GCSE results and evidence to sixthform@ribstonhall.gloucs.sch.uk
