6th Form Admissions

2018 Entry

Our sixth form offers opportunities for students who fulfil the academic criterion of 5 or more full course Grade 6 GCSEs subject to any individual course requirements (students are required to achieve a minimum Grade 6 in the subjects they wish to study at A level). Please note all students require at least a Grade 5 in English Language and Maths to be eligible for a place. Currently we cannot support students who need to re-take GCSEs. The maximum Year 12 cohort for September 2018 entry is 150 including a minimum planned admission number of 30 candidates from other schools.

Our Sixth Form Open Evening was held in November 2017. If you wish to have a guided tour of Stroud High School and discuss prospective A level subjects with current sixth form students please contact Julia Merrett, KS5 Administrator on 01453 847 103 or by emailing

All applications for the sixth form must be made using the Application Form for 2018 Entry which can be downloaded from the bottom of the page. You can also request a hard copy of the application form by contacting Julia Merrett as above.

The application form should be completed neatly in black ink and posted to:

Miss R Patel
Head of Sixth Form
Stroud High School
Beards Lane
Glos GL5 4HF

Following submission of the application form, applicants will be invited to attend an advisory discussion with a senior member of the Stroud High School leadership team to discuss subject choices, career pathway and how time at the school will prepare them for the future. Your current school will be asked for a reference.

Applicants are then sent a conditional offer confirming subject choices. Applicants choose the courses they wish to study at this stage, however, any offer made is for a place at the sixth form, with allocation and enrolment on courses completed later. Final places in Year 12 are subsequently confirmed following GCSE results day in August

Induction Days

We will be holding our Inductions Days on Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 July 2018. The focus of our first Induction Day is to allow you to get to know the school and the sixth form team and make sure you feel comfortable coming to a new learning environment. The second Induction Day is run jointly with Marling School Sixth Form. You will meet teachers from your proposed areas of study who will prepare you for the year ahead and provide advice and guidance on the transition from Year 11 to Year 12.
