Year 12 admission
Entry is based on an average points score from a student’s final GCSE grade or equivalent qualifications. For application purposes, students can calculate their current average points score using their estimated grades or mock exam results.
THE MINIMUM AVERAGE GCSE SCORE REQUIRED FOR ENTRY INTO THE SIXTH FORM IS 4.0
Students need an average of 4 or above, including either Maths or English.
Some subjects may require a higher average points score, and other specific entry requirements to be eligible to study them. A list of entry requirements will be provided to applicants on an annual basis (see prospectus).
[The average GCSE score system/criteria has been developed by analysing past exam result data. The results of this have shown that there is a correlation between a student’s average GCSE score and their subsequent A Level grades.]
Further to the above, please note the following important requirements:
- Mathematics/English Language GCSE. Students who do not achieve a least a grade 4 in either Mathematics and/or English Language must attend re-sit lessons and a re-sit examination. This will continue until a 4 or above has been achieved in both subjects.
- Crompton House can only accept a subject qualification once. If students have been entered for a subject through more than one exam board only the highest of these grades will count towards the average points score.
Year 13 admission
Entry into the Year 13 is not automatic. It is essential that the following criteria be met to gain entry into Year 13, this reflecting the increased academic challenge at this level.
Minimum Entry Requirements:
- To continue with subject into Year 13 the students must achieve a pass (grade E and above) in that subject during internal assessments.
- Students should continue into Year 13 with all subjects that they pass at E grade and above.
- The minimum number of subjects that a student can continue with into Year 13 is 2.
- Students must have demonstrated a minimum satisfactory level of attendance – 90% and behaviour in Year 12 to gain entry into Year 13.
This policy underlines our commitment to affording each student the best chance of academic success, and to supporting and encouraging every member of the learning community to reach their full potential. The policy replaces and nullifies any previous Sixth Form admissions policy.
