Welcome to the LCS 6th Form

Welcome to LCS 6th Form

Welcome to Littleover Community School Sixth Form and thank you for visiting our website. The Sixth Form was rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in both of their most recent inspections when it was part of the highly successful Millennium Centre Post 16 Partnership along with Derby Moor Community Sports College.

In September 2013 this partnership came to an end to enable Littleover Community School to deliver its own sixth form courses independently. This coincided with the opening of a brand new, purpose built sixth form centre. We have a reputation for academic excellence with students performing considerably higher than national averages year after year.

Approximately 95% of our students go on to study at university having completed a range of AS and A level subjects. While we are proud of our high academic standards, we also recognise the importance of providing students with an enjoyable and enriching experience throughout their time in the Sixth Form.  We offer a wide range of enrichment sessions in addition to a detailed tutorial programme designed to broaden the experiences of students, develop students as well rounded individuals and prepare them thoroughly for life at university and beyond.

For more information about the Sixth Form and what we offer please look at our current prospectus. If you would prefer a paper copy of the prospectus then please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to email or post one to you.

Applying for places at Sixth Form

Littleover Community School Sixth Form offers a wide range of AS and A Level courses. We aim to recruit approximately 175 students into Year 12 and we welcome applications from other schools. In a typical year approximately 60 students will be from schools other than Littleover Community School and all applications are considered on an equal basis.  

Applications should be made via our online application form that is available on the school website. Applications open after the Sixth Form Open Evening in mid-October and close at the end of the first week in December.  

The minimum entry criteria for Littleover Community School Sixth Form is Maths and English Language graded 5 or above and at least 3 other GCSE's graded 5 or above (in addition to the specific entrance requirements for each subject chosen as an A level which is available in the prospectus). However, the vast majority of students who receive offers will achieve 8 or more 9-5 grades with 9-6 in the subjects they wish to study at A Level. Where students plan to study subjects that they have not studied at GCSE level it is expected that they achieve grade 9-6 in subjects that have a similar skills set. Students wishing to study Further Maths must have an 8 or 9 in GCSE Maths and students wishing to study Maths must be graded 7-9 in GCSE Maths. Students who wish to study A level Physics, Chemistry or Physics must have a grade 9-6 in GCSE Maths as well as in the relevant science GCSE.  

Students joining us from schools other than Littleover will be required to provide evidence of their GCSE grades in the form of GCSE certificates or official results notification documents from the school where they sat their GCSEs. Places in the 6th Form will only be confirmed once this evidence has been received and students who fail to declare their GCSE results accurately will be removed from roll. 

More information can be found in the LCS Sixth Form Prospectus and other areas under the "Sixth Form" heading. 

Please note that if the number of applications who meet the entry criteria outlined above exceeds the number of 6th Form places that we have available then the quality of personal statements on the application forms will be used to determine which candidates receive offers.
