Enrolment to QPCS Sixth Form
Look at the information available and discuss it with your parents, tutor and relevant subject teachers. Further information about individual courses are available on the AQA, Edexcel and OCR websites as well as from subject staff. QPCS Year 11 students will complete a progression form in tutor time to indicate intentions for next year, students from elsewhere should complete an application form available on the website.
A senior member of staff will interview you and make sure you are choosing appropriately for your current attainment and aspirations for the future. Information about which courses will be available will be constantly updated in light of demand and opportunities becoming available.
Following a successful interview you will receive an offer conditional on achieving the grades required for the courses you are applying for.
In August, if your results are as expected, you will be enrolled onto your chosen courses. If, however, you have missed your grades, staff will be available to guide you towards an appropriate alternative.
