6th Form Admissions (16 – 18)

We understand that choosing the right 6th Form is a big decision and we aim to make the admissions process as simple and smooth as possible for our prospective families. Our dedicated Admissions and 6th Form Team are here to ensure you have a seamless journey at the different entry points and are on hand to explain our entrance procedures, scholarships, bursaries and to organise a visit to our 6th Form centre.

Academic life in the 6th Form at Wisbech Grammar School provides pupils with a wide range of subjects available for study as linear courses, which form the core educational experience. Pupils will usually choose 3 A Levels from a selection of over 20 subject options or a BTEC Diploma and follow their course for two years, before gaining qualifications which allow them access to university places, apprenticeships, and the post-A-level job market.
