How to apply
Ark Alexandra Sixth Form welcomes applications from any students for whom there is an appropriate course, and who demonstrate a positive attitude to learning, a level of attendance that will support achievement, and a record of conduct that is in keeping with the school code of conduct.
Applications are made directly to our sixth form, using the link below.
Applications for September 2023 are now open.
Each student must complete an application form with details of predicted grades and related course options. We then send out conditional offers based on the student’s predicted grades and their related course options at that time. Offers are subject to change in accordance with the actual results a student achieves.
If you have any questions about the admissions process, please contact Maggie Murphy, Associate Assistant Principal, Sixth Form. Maggie can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
