QPCS Sixth Form

Interested in enrolling for QPCS Sixth Form?

On this site you will find a comprehensive guide to our sixth form.

We have grown each year; the maximum number of students we can accommodate is 200 – small enough for us to get to know our students really well but large enough to offer a wide range of A level courses. We are also flexible enough to be able to organise our option blocks around the subject choices you make to suit as many students as possible.

Our results are improving all the time; last year our students’ grades matched or exceeded national averages in all A level subjects. The progress our students made was in the top 10% nationally.

The curriculum information on this site sets out entry requirements for the courses, outlines of what they involve and suggestions of progression routes. Further details about the individual courses are available from the AQA, Edexcel and OCR websites and from subject staff.

The Enrolment page sets out how to apply to QPCS:

  • QPCS Year 11 students complete a Progression Form in tutor time to indicate their plans for next year. This is your opportunity to indicate the subjects that you want to study, you do not need to complete a separate application form, you can change your mind later.

  • Students applying from other schools will find an application form on this website.

  • A senior member of staff will interview you to discuss your choices in detail.

  • In August, if your results are as expected, you will be signed up to your chosen courses.

In the meantime, use these websites to help guide you:
