Sixth Form Admissions


    Following a visit, if you would like your child to be considered for a place at Hurst Senior School please complete the registration form as soon as possible and return this to Admissions together with payment of the £100 registration fee (this can also be paid online from the Fees and online payments page). This will initially reserve a place for your child in the year group, but it is not a guarantee of a place.  

    We advise registering your child at least 12 to 18 months prior to when you would like them to join.

    Entry Requirements

    To enrol for the Sixth Form, pupils require a Level 7 and above at GCSE in the subjects they intend to study, as well as a minimum of a Level 4 grade at GCSE in maths and english, if these are not one of the subjects to be studied. Pupils who wish to start a new subject which they have not studied before, will need to have achieved a Level 7 and above in a GCSE subject closely related to it i.e. for Economics, pupils should have a Level 7 or above in maths.

    A satisfactory reference is required from the pupil’s current school.


    Registered pupils are invited to attend assessment days in November where they will sit verbal and non-verbal reasoning papers, attend interviews with several members of the Sixth Form staff as well as the Headmaster.  

    Pupils applying for Scholarships will be assessed for these at the same time. 

    Confidential references including predicted GCSE grades will be requested from a pupils’ current school prior to the assessment days and parents are asked to inform their child’s school of their application to Hurst.


    Based on the results of the reasoning tests, predicted GCSE grades, interview performance and scholarship assessment (where relevant), offers will be made during the first week of December, subject to achieving the required grades at GCSE and receipt of a satisfactory reference from the pupil’s current school.
