Cranbrook School - Respect Aspire Achieve

Sixth Form Admissions

Nearly 90% of our Year 12 entry is drawn from the school’s GCSE student roll.

Each year, however, we accept a small number of students from other schools.  Sixth Form entry (for day entry and boarders alike) is subject to availability and the attainment of a minimum of 48 points at GCSE, or the equivalent for candidates overseas, where:

  • Points will be on a 1-9 point scale, where Grade 1 = 1 and 2 = 2 etc.
  • At least a Grade 6 at GCSE in the subject chosen for A Level (or its nearest equivalent).
  • At least a Grade 8 at GCSE Maths to study Further Maths at A Level.
  • At least a Grade 4 in English and Maths at GCSE.

(Please note that this is a minimum requirement and that the majority of external candidates are predicted to attain significantly superior GCSE qualifications.)

We usually have very few boarding spaces for Year 12 entry and that this will vary year on year.  Only those students who have the highest predicted grades will be invited for interview when the registration period has closed and when we are confident of the number of spaces we can offer.  For day students we normally have an additional 20 spaces available for external students wishing to join Cranbrook.

SIXTH FORM ENTRY SEPTEMBER 2019 – Application for entry in September 2019 closed on the 14 December 2018. The application form is available for download from the right hand of this page.  Late applications may still be accepted – please contact the Registrar to enquire.

Our Sixth Form Booklet, detailing the A Level courses available to study at Cranbrook School, together with the entry requirements for each individual subject, is also available to download.

Please refer to our Boarding Admissions Policy 2019  for more details.

As one of the country’s few State boarding schools, the education provided by Cranbrook School is free to day students and boarders alike. The only charges levied by the Governors go towards boarders’ accommodation and live-in costs – far lower than Independent sector fees.

Years 12 -13   – £5,520.00 per term
