Applying for Sixth Form

Welcome to our Sixth Form

We look forward to receiving your application and welcoming you to our ever growing and successful Sixth Form.

Sixth Form Admissions Statement

Roding Valley High School’s Sixth Form is available for all 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 a 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.

Successful students will sign an agreed code of conduct.

Entry Requirements

Students must meet the specific subject requirements as published in the Sixth Form course guide available from the school.

Offers will be made according to places available in the relevant teaching groups and subject to courses running. Where this does not provide sufficient differentiation between students for the final places preference will be given to:

1.    A ‘looked after child’ or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or             (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989).

2.    Those students who have attended Roding Valley High School or one of the other schools in The CLP Trust.

3.     The student(s) who live(s) closest to the school.  Priority will be determined by straight-line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.

For applicants not awarded a place as a result of the above, they may appeal to an independent statutory appeals panel established under the current regulations, especially for this purpose.

A waiting list will be maintained by the school.

Although the application deadline of 13th December 2021 has now passed, we are still accepting applications onto our reserve list for intake September 2022.

We welcome applications for our new cohort and would love to hear from you if you are interested in studying with us. To apply to join our Sixth Form in September 2022, please use this link for our Online Application Form. Our entry requirements are detailed in this document.
