How to apply
Applications are made directly to our sixth form and can be made via a link that will show on this website.
Each student must complete an application form with details of predicted grades and related course options. After submitting an application, each student will have a formal admissions interview with a member of the Sixth Form team in February. We then send out conditional offers based on the student’s predicted grades and their related courses options at that time. Offers are subject to change in accordance with the actual results a student achieves.
If you have any questions about the admissions process, don't hesitate to get in contact.
We offer two key pathways at Ark St Alban's Sixth Form.
A Level Pathway
We offer the core academic A Level subjects that we know are most valued by good universities, and that allow you to keep your progression options as open as possible. Most students will study three linear A levels; some will take a fourth subject, depending on GCSE results.
Professional Pathways is an innovative programme of study for Ark BTEC students aged 16-18, comprising a high quality vocational curriculum that is directly relevant to the workplace and teaches students key employability skills. This programme is aimed at preparing students to apply for selective universities or for progression directly into employment through school leaver programmes or degree apprenticeships.
