The usual minimum entry requirement for a pupil beginning a course of 3 or 4 subjects in Lower Sixth at Kingham Hill is that they have received five 4s and above at GCSE, including Maths and English. They will normally be expected to have achieved 6s or 7s in the subjects they choose to study. Some subjects can be taken with no prior study, for example in Economics, GCSE Economics is not required but good grades in Maths and in a Humanities subject would be needed.
Our entry requirements have been put in place to ensure that pupils succeed in their subjects in the Sixth Form, and are being set up to do well. However, we do appreciate that every individual pupil is different and therefore we are happy to confirm each pupil’s study on a case by case basis. If you have any concerns or queries about this, please do get in touch with Mrs Berkeley in the first instance.
