Sixth Form Entry Criteria – September 2021

Admission to TKA Sixth Form requires 5 GCSEs grades 4 – 9 including at least a grade 4 in Maths and English. Please see below the additional criteria for each A-level subject. Option blocks will be generated depending on the choices made by the cohort, so it may not be possible for every student to get a place on their first 3 choices, which is why we ask you to also choose a reserve. Courses are offered subject to staff recruitment and sufficient student numbers.
