Sixth Form Applications are now closed.

Applications for September 2024 entry closed on 31 January 2024. If you have any queries, please contact our Sixth Form team on admissions@uobschool.org.uk

Applicants: What to expect next.

Now that our deadline has passed and your Sixth Form application has been submitted, our Sixth Form Team are currently working hard to complete a host of checks, ensuring that we have all the information we need to process your applications. In the meantime, we do know that many of you will be anxious to hear from us, so here is a quick guide to our admissions process and what to expect over the coming months…

1. Grade Verification (contacting your school referee): We will begin contacting school referees by email, asking them to submit a quick verification that the grades submitted on your application are correct. This is an opportunity for your school to check that you have entered your subjects, grades and qualifications correctly – before we start allocating Conditional Offers. This is an important step, as it is the grades which have been confirmed by the school which will be used when calculating an applicant’s eligibility for a Conditional Offer.

Please note that only school referees can confirm these grades – we will not be able to accept any updated/corrected grades from applicants or families. The deadline for referees to return the verification is Friday 15 March 2024.

If we find any issues with the email address or contact details for your referee, we may be in touch – so please do keep an eye on your inbox for any messages from us.

2. Processing Conditional Offers

Once all grade confirmations have been received, we will begin cross-checking grades against our Subject Specific Entry Requirements, and begin the process of allocating Conditional Offers.

These Offers will be based on the subjects that were listed on your application as of 31 January. These choices have now been locked in whilst we build our timetable for September – therefore requests to change subjects will not be possible until Enrolment begins on 22 August 2024. We expect that all applicants will be contacted by email with the outcome of their application by mid-April.

3. Sixth Form Experience Day

Later in the summer, once your exams are out of the way, all Offer Holders will be invited to visit us in school for our annual Sixth Form Experience Day (Date TBC). This is an opportunity to find out more about life as a sixth form student at UoBS, try out some of your A Level subjects and meet some of the other students who may be starting with you in September!

4. Sixth Form Enrolment/ GCSE Results Day – Thursday 22 August

The big day! Once you have received your GCSE results from your school, Offer Holders will be invited to visit us in school to confirm their Sixth Form place and finalise their subject choices. Any applicants who were previously unsuccessful in gaining a Conditional Offer, but later meet our Entry Requirements, will also be invited to attend if they wish to be considered via our Applicant Pool. More information about this process will be shared once details for this year have been finalised.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can always contact us by emailing admissions@uobschool.org.uk and we will do our best to help.

Purposefully designed with your
future in mind.
