How to Apply

The William de Ferrers School sixth form is available for all our existing students and applications from external students are most welcome

Students will be admitted into the sixth form at age 16 where the school agrees it is able to offer and resource for the student, a programme of study from which he or she will benefit.

Key stage 5 courses chosen by students and their GCSE results will be discussed individually with each student prior to a place being confirmed at the commencement of the relevant academic year.

The sixth form open evening took place this year on Thursday 17 October 2019.  Please follow this link to the presentation from the meeting.
