Sixth Form pupils

Sixth
Form

Applications to join UCS in September 2020 (from candidates who are in Year 11 during the academic year 2019-20) have now closed.

We are now accepting applications to join UCS at 16+ in September 2021, i.e. from candidates who are in Year 10 during the academic year 2019-20.

We offer approximately 55 places to girls aged 16 or over each year. A small number of places will also be available for boys of the same age. The successful candidates will join the vast majority of our current Year 11 boys as they continue into the Sixth Form. 

The selection process

Initial selection will be by means of the UCS 16+ Assessment. The Assessment will not be subject-specific, but will be an objective test of thinking, reasoning and problem-solving skills. A confidential report (including a forecast of GCSE grades, or equivalent) will be requested from each candidate’s current school. As many candidates as possible will be called to UCS for interview following the Assessment. Offers of places will be made to successful candidates in December. These offers must be firmly and finally accepted or declined at that time.

All offers to come into the Sixth Form at UCS are conditional on GCSE grades. Candidates receiving offers must score an average of 6.5 points or more in their GCSE/ IGCSE examinations, where 9 points is equivalent to a Grade 9, 8 points equivalent to a Grade 8 and so on. Any GCSE grades awarded on the legacy A*-U scale will be counted as 8 for an A*, 7 for an A, 6 for a B, 4 for a C, 3 for a D, and 2 for an E. Please note that we assume students will take a minimum of nine GCSEs and IGCSEs in total, and we may set an alternative requirement for any student taking eight or fewer subjects at GCSE. We only count grades in eligible subjects. For full details please contact the Admissions Office.

Needs-based financial assistance with fees is available, as well as Music Scholarships. A separate application needs to be made for Music Scholarships. Please see the Bursaries & Scholarships page for more details.

Please contact the Senior School Admissions Officer with questions on 020 7433 2117/ 2118 or at ssadmissions@ucs.org.uk.
