Admission to sixth form - how to apply
Making the right choices
The Stafford Collegiate Prospectus and the Weston Road Academy Prospectus provide plenty of information about the application process and the different courses you can choose. You need to read these very carefully if you are to make an informed choice about your future. You will find the entry criteria, key dates, the curriculum programme and the collegiate timetable. See Mr Gibbard if you have any questions
Mr Gibbard will also speak to all Y11 students about the 6th Form, and students will have the chance to speak to current 6th Formers about their experiences.
You will also have the opportunity to try taster sessions of new subjects before you make your decision. Furthermore, you’ll be invited to have taster sessions of your chosen subjects in July, after your exams have finished.
The Stafford Collegiate utilises UCAS Progress to register its students, as described in the Collegiate Prospectus. However, at Weston Road we like to offer as much guidance as possible to our students. As a result, students are not expected to complete UCAS Progress on their own. Instead, Y11 students will be given an appointment with the Head of Sixth Form or the Assistant Head of Sixth Form in February and we will complete the application together. This gives us the opportunity to get to know you and your strengths, and discuss any future goals that may inform decisions made now. Therefore, there is no need to complete the registration on UCAS Progress.
Every year, the Sixth Form welcomes students from other schools. Students who wish to apply to our Sixth Form but are not currently studying at the academy should contact Mr Gibbard to arrange an appointment so that students can see our Sixth Form in action and discuss the best course for them.
Any student who wishes to be admitted on our role who is not already a student at the Academy will need to complete an Admissions Form which can be found at the bottom of the 'Admissions' section within the Academy tab or by clicking here.
