How to apply

If you decide that you are interested in entering the Sixth Form at Harrogate Grammar School, your first step should be to come along for a visit. If you are not able to attend an Open Evening/Open Afternoon then contact the school to make arrangements to visit on an alternative date.

Which course and combination of courses will be right for me?

We offer a wide variety of courses, some of which you will have studied up to Year 11, and others which are brand new and only available in the Sixth Form. In addition, we offer a number of advanced vocational courses.

There are some subjects that have a traditional exam focus and there are others where the assessment is project-based and continuous throughout the course. It is important to make the choices that are right for you.

Spreading assessment throughout the course by studying project-based qualifications provides a much higher chance of success for some students. For students who are mainly achieving 5 or 4 grades at GCSE, we recommend a certain number of project-based courses to help balance workload.

One of the most important factors in achieving success at Sixth Form is selecting the most appropriate courses at the start of Year 12. We want all students to leave our Sixth Form having been successful in their subjects and being able to follow the university or employment path of their choice.
