Academic Requirements

With the introduction of the new numerical grading system at GCSE for the majority of (but not all) subjects, to avoid ambiguity we have redefined the entry requirements for Sixth Form.

Boys wishing to follow a Sixth Form course at Warwick School must attain a minimum of 51 GCSE points from their best 8 GCSE grades. This figure is the equivalent of the previously stated entry requirements of three grade 7(A) and five grade 6(B).

Entry process

Entry to the Sixth Form is based on the outcome of an interview with the Head of Sixth Form, Senior Deputy Headmaster and subject teachers, a report from the candidate’s current school (with an indication of predicted grades at GCSE) and meeting the school’s academic requirements for entry to the Sixth Form.

Subsequent to the interview, and a satisfactory report, an offer may be made for entry the following September.

Our new shared Sixth Form Centre for Warwick School boys and King High girls is now open, providing space for both private study and opportunities to socialise together (whilst teaching remains single sex within the schools).

SIXTH FORM SCHOLARSHIPS

Sixth Form Scholarships are awarded in recognition of sustained hard work and outstanding attainment throughout the GCSE course. The Head Master may award one or two each year, after careful consultation with academic staff.  There is no process by which to apply for these awards. 

Candidates will be expected to gain at least six 8(A*) grades at GCSE. For external candidates evidence of this will be required from a school report. Candidates do not need to apply for a scholarship but will be identified at interview stage.

BURSARIES

Warwick School, as part of the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation, benefits from a scheme offering the possibility of free or discounted places based on financial need. These awards are offered on a sliding scale dependent upon parental income and subject to results of interviews.

Bursary awards are means tested. Only in exceptional circumstances would an award be made to a family with an income exceeding £40,000 after tax.

As well as the potential of a free or discounted place, help is also available towards other expenses including uniforms and educational trips.

Parents wishing to apply for a bursary will be required to submit details of their financial circumstances in full confidence.

All applicants are asked to indicate if they are applying for a Foundation Bursary.

Student Loans for Further Education

Student interest-free loans of up to £1500 per year for each year of the course (subject to conditions) are available to students living in Warwick (CV34 postcode) going to University or College.
