Thorpe St Andrew School and Sixth Form continues to operate an open access policy, specialising in advanced course provision. We are also committed to maintaining and protecting the positive ethos and high levels of motivation upon which student success is built.
All students will be expected to have appropriate qualifications and capability for the course that they wish to follow. Another key deciding factor in determining acceptance will be each student’s past record in terms of motivation, behaviour, attendance and relationships with staff.
There are other expectations of Sixth Form students, relating to areas such as: appropriate standards of dress; attendance to school; attendance at lessons; commitment to work and completion of work assignments. Students will be required to make a commitment within these areas before being accepted into the Sixth Form.
In order to ensure success in the Sixth Form, we have designed different pathways to suit your individual needs. You will need to check the specific entry criteria for your chosen courses by checking each course description under “Courses on Offer” and the Sixth Form brochure gives full details.
All applicants will receive an interview to ensure the courses chosen suit future aspirations and to be advised about the availability of courses that will best meet their needs.
The school reserves the right to withdraw under-subscribed courses.
