Year 12 Entry

Each year around 30 additional students are accepted to join Year 12 for our Sixth Form programme. Ampleforth College’s excellent teaching, wide range of extra-curricular programmes and emphasis on developing well-rounded students attract many girls and boys who want to prepare for the transition to university.

You can register for Year 12 entry at any point, but most families do so by Christmas of their son or daughter’s Year 10. To be considered for Sixth Form students will visit the school or have a virtual interview with our Registrar.

Offers are dependent on an interview and a reference from the student’s current school and are conditional on successful performance in GCSEs or equivalent qualifications. We request in general a minimum of 3 Grade 5s and 2 Grade 6s for students following GCSE courses. Students who wish to study for BTECs must have a minimum of 5 Grade 4s.
