Applying for places at Sixth Form

Littleover Community School Sixth Form offers a wide range of AS and A Level courses. We usually aim to recruit approximately 175 students into Year 12 and we welcome applications from students who have studied their GCSEs in 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 on-line application form, available on the school website. Applications typically 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, students must also achieve a grade 6 or above in subjects that 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 skill 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 Biology 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 their current school. Places in the Sixth Form will only be confirmed once this evidence has been received and students who fail to declare their GCSE results accurately will be refused places, or removed from roll.

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