Sixth Form Applications

Sixth Form Applications

Internal Students

All students studying at SJB in Year 11 are entitled to a place in the Sixth Form if they meet the admission criteria. There is no formal application process for internal students.

Throughout Year 11 there are many opportunities for our students to see what is available in the Sixth Form and to discuss their options with a member of staff. In the first half of the spring term, all students, along with their parents, will meet with a member of the School Leadership Team as part of the next steps process; post-16 options will form part of this discussion.

External Applicants

We welcome applications from students who are not currently at SJB.

The application window will remain open until 6pm on Monday 8th of January 2024, after which the application form will no longer be active or accessible.
