How do I apply?

What grades do I need?

To study 3 A levels you will need to achieve 5 grade 9-5s. Certain subject might require slightly higher grades such as Maths. 

If I do not manage to achieve the entry requirements, what happens? 

If depends. We would have a conversation about your strengths and look if there are some courses that you are likely to both enjoy and do well in. We approach each student on a case by case basis. 

Is it true you only need to choose 3 subjects?

It is. 90% of students take three A Levels. Some students take 4 but this needs to be agreed to by the Head of Sixth Form based on how well you do in your GCSEs. A few students might take 2 A levels if they are re-siting both English and Maths. 

Can I join the Sixth Form and resit some GCSEs?

If you do not get a 4 in Maths and/or English Language you will be required to resit them.  These are the only GCSEs we have resits for. 

What should I wear?

We want to strike the right balance between expressing individuality and being smart.  We require students come to sixth form in office wear.  See link.

What happens if I can’t take all my chosen subjects at Marlborough?

We are fortunate to work within a consortium of 5 other schools.  If there is a subject you are interested in that we do not offer, you might be able to take it at consortium school. 

What happens if I change my mind between now and September?

That isn’t a problem.  We will write to all student at several points during the year to check.  It is important we have a good idea what you want to do because some courses might not run if there is no initial interest.  On results day in August we will ask you to formally enrol based on your GCSE results. 

If I have other questions about join Sixth Form what do I do?

If it is a general question please email G.Battams@Marlborough.herts.sch.uk – if it is a subject question please contact the subject leader directly.  You can find their email underneath their subject video. 

What’s the deadline for joining?

Friday 18th December.  We will continue accepting application well after this date but in January I will be using the information provided to build the options blocks.
