Entry Requirements

Course Entry Requirements

Our aspiration is for all Park Hall students to continue their education in the Sixth Form at Park Hall. The following entry requirements provide a clear guideline regarding student suitability to specific courses.

A levels: Students must have 5 GCSE Grades at 5 and above with at least a grade 5 or above in the most relevant subject. (Please see the table below for subject specific requirements)

Please note: Students that achieve a grade 4 in either GCSE Maths or GCSE English may still be able to study A levels in the Sixth form if they meet the other entry criteria.

Level 3 Btec courses: Students must have 5 GCSE grades at 4 and above. Merit grades on Btec Level 2 courses are an indicator of suitability at level 3.

Please note: Students that achieve a grade 3 in either GCSE Maths or GCSE English may still be able to study in the Sixth form if they meet the other entry criteria. Students will be required to resit GCSE Maths and English in year 12 if they achieve less than a grade 4.
