Admissions

Sixth Form Admissions 2020-21

 

Admission Number

Epsom & Ewell High School will provide 20 places in Year 12 for those who enrol as new students in Year 12 in addition to students who continue into the Sixth form from Year 11 at EEHS.  Full information about the opportunities provided and full details about the courses available are set out in the EEHS Sixth Form Prospectus.

Minimum Entry Requirements

The BTEC pathway is available to students who achieve a minimum of a level 4 in 5 subjects including English and Mathematics.

Many students who attain at least 5 good grades at GCSE choose to study A Levels.  In order to do this, you must achieve at least 5 level 4 GCSE grades, and a level 4 in English and Mathematics, with Level 5 in each of the subjects you wish to continue at A Level.

There will be an opportunity to discuss options and academic entry requirements for courses during applicant interviews.

Admission Criteria

If the number of external applicants, who meet the minimum entry requirements for specific courses, exceeds the Sixth Form Admission Number, the following priorities will be used when offering places:

  1. Looked after children and previously looked after children will be: children who are registered as being in the care of a local authority or provided with accommodation by a local authority in accordance with Section 22 of the Children Act 1989(a), e.g. fostered or living in a children’s home, at the time an application for a school is made; and children who have previously been in the care of a local authority or provided with accommodation by a local authority in accordance with Section 22 of the Children Act 1989(a) and who have left that care through adoption, a child arrangements order (in accordance with Section 8 of the Children Act 1989 and as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014) or special guardianship order (in accordance with Section 14A of the Children Act 1989).
  2. Children who will have a sibling attending the school at the date of admission; (sibling refers to brother or sister, half brother or sister, adopted brother or sister, foster sister or brother, step brother or sister or the child of the carer’s partner where the child for whom the school place is sought is living in the same family unit at the same address)
  3. Children with major medical or social grounds, supported by certification from a Doctor or a senior practitioner in social work, which indicates grounds why Epsom & Ewell High School would be the most appropriate for the child to attend; (This evidence should set out the particular reasons why this school is the most suitable and the difficulties that would be caused if he/she had to attend another school. The school may feel it appropriate to consult its own medical advisor.)
  4. The remaining places will be allocated to children living nearer to the school who will be assigned a place before those living further away.

Courses

We offer a broad range of subjects at key stages 5 including both A Levels and BTEC Level 3 qualifications. A summary of the courses and, crucially, the curriculum detail of each course can be found on the whole school curriculum overview page. Please note that all our sixth form courses on offer for the next academic year can be found on the application form and option blocks are subject to change each year.
