Sixth Form

Admission to Year 12 (Sixth Form)

All students wishing to continue their studies into the Sixth Form are required to achieve a minimum of six grade 6s at GCSE, and preferably at least a grade 6 in the subjects they intend to study. Many current students have achieved grades 9 - 7 at GCSE in the subjects they are taking at A Level.

Each year Ripon Grammar School typically admits 40-50 students into the Sixth Form from other schools. Offers are made on the basis of academic potential, as judged by a student's school reports and their predicted GCSE grades.

Applications for Sixth Form places are made directly to Ripon Grammar School and information about the courses offered can be found in the Course Guide 2020.

Those interested in a boarding place should complete the main application form, as well as the Sixth Form Suitability for Boarding Form, see links to forms below:
