6th Form Open Evening flyer 2023

At Crickhowell High School, we consider every application on its merits.  We want to ensure than any student entering our Sixth Form has a full and balanced programme and is capable of achieving success at AS and A Level.  In general, this requires five GCSE C grades and a minimum Grade B at GCSE level in the chosen subjects.  Where there is no direct GCSE equivalent, as in the case of Business or Law for example, we would be looking for Grade B in related subjects, such as English or History.
It is also important that students have demonstrated an appropriate attitude to study and possess the capability of working independently and meeting subject requirements.  Our induction process, including an interview, will highlight any shortcomings in this regard and students will be given specific targets to meet in order to satisfy us that they are prepared for the challenge of Sixth Form studies.
