Admissions to Sixth Form

Every year we welcome a significant number of students into our Sixth Form who have completed Year 11 at other schools.

There is no selection test for entrance to the Sixth Form. There is no limit for students who have completed Year 11 at Skipton Girls’ High School but all applicants, internal and external, must meet the academic entry criteria for the courses which they wish to take. There is a target figure of 35 for external applications.

The academic criteria, along with the closing date for applications, are published annually in the School’s Sixth Form Prospectus, and are available from the School on request.

If more external applicants meet these academic criteria than there are places, then the oversubscription criteria cited in our Admissions Policy will be applied.

We hold a Sixth Form Open Evening in November each year and Open Mornings during the Autumn Term. We would actively encourage potential students to visit the school or ask questions at any time.

For further information please contact either: Mr M Blythe – Head of Post 16 (blythem@sghs.org.uk)
