Applications for entry to the sixth form in 2020 are now open. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information or to book a place on the sixth form Open Morning on Saturday 5 October.
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.

To matriculate into the Sixth Form at Hurst pupils require at least 4 Grade A or Level 7 GCSEs. They should have an A or A* grade in the subjects that they intend to study and, where a pupil wishes to start a new subject which they have not studied before, they need to have achieved an A/A* in a GCSE subject closely related to it (i.e. for Economics, ideally a pupil should have an A/A* in Maths GCSE). Students should also have a minimum of a C grade or Level 5 at GCSE in Mathematics and English. However, we recognise the need to be flexible and to operate on an individual pupil basis, working closely with each student on his or her choices, to establish what will be the best programme of study for them. In addition to A Level, we run a BTEC programme in Sport and Extended Project Qualifications.
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.
