The requirement for girls wishing to enter the Sixth Form from another school is a minimum of six 7-9 grades at GCSE, with 8-9 grades in the subjects you wish to study. Girls and parents  are warmly invited to arrange to visit us by contacting our Admissions Officer, Ms Jane Ellis, on or 0161 249 3371.

On receipt of an Application Form, we write to the prospective student’s current school for references.  We then invite prospective Sixth Formers for interview during the latter half of the Spring Term or the start of the Summer Term.

If, on GCSE Results day, the required grades have been attained, pupils are asked to inform us, upon which they will be invited into school to bring in their GCSE results and collect a Welcome pack.
