Applying to our Sixth Form


We pride ourselves at Prince Henry's on treating each student as an individual.  You need to ask yourself:

Are you good at exams? Are you good at coursework?

Students with a strong performance in examinations will normally be recommended to follow courses in which the main mode of assessment is examination.

If a student prefers coursework as a mode of assessment, it makes sense to consider applying for courses with a high coursework component or possibly mixing these with an exam-based subject.

Our general entry requirements are an average of Grade 4 at GCSE for Academic A Levels and at least 4 subjects at Grade 4 for Applied Courses. International students require at least IELTS Level 6. Please refer to specific subjects for details of how they are assessed and what GCSE grades are required to do these courses.

Although applications will be considered at any time, the applications process is designed to give students a clear goal for their progress during this academic year and an understanding of the standards they will be required to reach. Therefore, if possible, we ask students joining us in September 2019 to return their application by 31st January 2019. 

For September 2019, applications will be made through UCAS Progress and all students at a Leeds school will be able to apply in this way.  Students outside the Leeds area should download and submit an application form from the school website.  For September 2020, applications will be submitted through an electronic application form.

All students who submit an application will have a meeting with a member of the Sixth Form Team to discuss their course choices.  All offers of places in the Sixth form will be subject to satisfactory GCSE performance and the availability of courses.
