Sixth Form Entry

How to Apply to High Storrs Sixth Form

  • Students at Sheffield Local Authority schools (including High Storrs), please complete an application on ‘UCAS Progress’
  • Students at an independent school or from a school outside of Sheffield, please complete the Common Application Form (CAF), available as a download to the right, and return this to Sheffield City Council, not school.
  • Students are advised to select at least 4 subjects, although they may eventually only start 3 of these. You must list your subject choices in preferential order.
  • You must select your subjects from the list of those on offer, see list on the right. Full course details are available on the Courses 2018-19 page
  • Students MUST ensure that their predicted GCSE/BTEC grades meet the entry requirements for each subject for which they are applying (see the document available to download to the right).

All students who enrol onto courses for September 2018 will be expected to show the required application to their course and to attend regularly. Support will be available from subject teachers and form tutors at all times, it is the responsibility of students to access and use this support. During the initial weeks, students' progress will be monitored closely and if concerns are raised a programme of mentoring and additional support will be put in place. 

Important Dates


We expect our Sixth Form students to show a genuine desire to continue in education. In order to be successful on a course of study we require students to have passed a minimum of five Grade 9 - 4 / A* - C at GCSE. This must include at least a Grade 4 in English Language and a sound background for their chosen course.

If you are a student applying with GCSEs achieved before 2017 you must have English Language at Grade C or above.

Please check additional individual subject requirements that may apply, carefully on the course page.


Good GCSE grades in English and Mathematics are important for progression into many further courses and careers. Any student studying A Level courses who has not gained a Grade 4 or better in Mathematics will be required to attend lessons to prepare for a Maths re-sit examination.

In High Storrs School students are expected to pay for all examinations which they re-sit. We only offer a GCSE re-sit in Mathematics.
