Enfield Grammar School will normally accept up to a maximum of 140 students per academic year into the Sixth Form. 128 of these places are prioritised for Enfield Grammar School students, including up to 5 places reserved for Sport and Music Scholars. A maximum of twelve places are reserved for non-EGS/external applications. However, depending on the level of subscription from existing Enfield Grammar School students or external students, it may be possible to offer additional places to Enfield Grammar School or external students to meet capacity.
The overall aim of the admissions criteria is to ensure the right students are on the right course.
GCSE grades attained are used to determine which will be the most appropriate courses for each individual student.
- All students will have to take subjects in a minimum of three blocks excluding any GCSE re-sit.
- Any student who does not achieve a Grade 4 in English or Mathematics has to take a GCSE re-sit course.
- Students must meet the entry requirements for each course they wish to take.
- To gain entry into the sixth form students require 5 grades of between 9 and 5
- Students are able to select a combination of A-levels and vocational courses.
Individual subject requirements are outlined in the EGS Entry Requirements document (available on the school website).
Please be aware all courses are dependent on sufficient student numbers, but as a school we will do all that we possibly can to ensure we are able to offer all courses selected by students.
Conditional offers made following course meetings are subject to change. Students who do not meet the expectations of the school may not receive an offer and can have conditional offers removed.
Entrance into the Sixth Form is subject to the regulations regarding nationality, residency status and eligibility for study in UK school Sixth Forms that apply at the time. Currently, students can be admitted into the Sixth Form if:
- They are British Citizens and/or EU nationals.
- Non-EU nationals can be admitted into the Sixth Form if, for example:
- they have ‘Exceptional’ or ‘Indefinite Leave to Remain’ in this country;
- they have refugee status;
- their residency is a condition of their parent(s) legal employment status in this country.
Students who are classified as ‘Overseas Learners’ or who have ‘Student Visas’ cannot be admitted to the Sixth Form for funding reasons.
Enfield Grammar Sixth Form is unable to accept students on a fee paying basis.
Every effort will be made to allow students meeting entry requirements to access the courses they wish to study.
- Students who are in the care of a local authority (as defined by section 22 of the Children Act 1989) subject to meeting the specific entry criteria for their chosen programme of study.
- Students with EHC plans and applicants who are judged to have an exceptional social or medical need. There will have to be a clear link between the child’s exceptional need and the school. Parents/carers will need to submit a case supported by appropriate professional evidence from a doctor, social worker, or similar professional (evidence can include a letter or report showing active involvement from a CAMHS practitioner. A GP letter or CAMHS referral is not sufficient). This evidence will need to support the link between the need and the school.
- Final GCSE Progress scores will be used in the event of courses being oversubscribed with students meeting sixth form and subject entry requirements. We believe that this rewards and encourages hard work.
Should more than one students have the same Progress Score in the subject then the following priorities will apply:
- Highest Overall Progress 8 score used to allocate course.
- Sport or Music Scholar students.
- Internal subject data evidence supporting course suitability.
- Engagement with school ethos in Year 7-11 based on evidence of positive contribution.
- Distance from the Enfield Grammar School Tudor Hall. This distance will be determined by the straight line distance from the boy’s home to the Tudor Hall.
Week 4 is course change week. After this time no student will be permitted to move courses without the direct authorisation from the Head of Sixth Form.
Students not gaining first choices will be offered courses should spaces become available but will follow the same criteria set out above.
- Any fraudulent or misleading information given in support of an application may result in the Governors withdrawing a place that has been offered.
- Applications received after the published deadline will be considered only if the circumstances are deemed to be exceptional by the Governing Body or if vacancies still exist.
- Unsuccessful applicants have the right of appeal to an independent Admissions Appeals’ Committee.
- All courses are dependent on sufficient student numbers and individual student grades.
- If a course is removed then we will inform students and offer alternative courses
All final decisions are made by the Head teacher at his discretion
