* Places in Withington’s Sixth Form are limited and prospective students who wish to apply should consider registering their interest in participating in the Sixth Form preliminary interview process during late November/early December. We recommend this route for girls who know their A-Level subject choices and whose predicted grades meet our entry requirements (a minimum of six 7-9 grades at GCSE, with 8-9 grades in the subjects you wish to study). Based on the outcome of this interview, some candidates will be invited to make an application, after which a second interview would take place before 20th March 2020. The first round of conditional offers would be made by 27th March 2020. Sixth Form enquiries made after 15th November 2019 may not be taken forward until we know the outcome of the preliminary interviews at the earliest, or possibly until the outcome of the first round of conditional offers is known.
If you have any questions regarding the admissions process and events, please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions Officer, Ms Jane Ellis, on 0161 249 3371 or firstname.lastname@example.org
