Sixth Form Admissions


Sixth Form (age 16+)

Students are encouraged to attend the Sixth Form Admissions Evening in October. Prospective students will need to achieve a minimum of two A grades and four B grades overall at GCSE. An offer of a place is based upon personal statement, school report, mock and predicted grades, school reference and interview with the Head of Sixth Form.

Sixth Form Open Evening Wednesday 18 October 2017, 7.00pm-9.00pm

International Students

All overseas students are required to sit entrance examinations at their current school, with an approved agent, the local British Council office or at New Hall. Prospective Sixth Form students are required to sit papers in the subjects they wish to study. A level of proficiency in English equivalent to at least IELTS 6.5 is required for entry to Sixth Form.


New Hall School offers a limited number of means-tested bursaries, of up to 100% of fees. Details are available in the Bursaries & Scholarships Policy, which can be found here. Applications for bursaries must be received by 8 January of the year of entry. For further details, please contact the Finance Secretary.


Scholarships are available for Sixth Form entry. Scholarship Application Forms will automatically be sent to all registered students. As well as financial scholarships, there are honorary awards available that offer students recognition for their talents and potential which will benefit them throughout their academic careers and into adulthood.

Assessment is based on the New Hall entrance examinations, interview and Headteacher’s report. Preference may be given to boarders and Catholics where candidates of similar ability are being considered.

Most scholarships will have a fee remission attached to them, normally of 10% - one third remission of fees, with some top scholarships awarded at 50% to the highest performers in the academic assessments. All scholarships are net of prompt payment discount. The total value of the scholarships awarded will depend on the available funds. Subject to the availability of funds, an additional means-tested remission up to 100% of fees may be awarded to a recipient of a scholarship, if the fees would otherwise be unaffordable.
