Students in Year 11 at the Dixie will start the process of considering their A level choices early, culminating in discussions with our Head of Sixth Form and Head of Upper School to support this important step.
At the Dixie we also have an excellent record for welcoming students from other schools into our Sixth Form and helping them to achieve their ambitions. We hold an annual Sixth Form Open Evening in November which is open to all, but would be very happy to arrange a personal tour of the school for prospective students and their family at any time. For students wishing to apply from outside the school for entry to the Sixth Form, there will also be an opportunity to meet with the Headmaster and the Head of Sixth Form.
All students joining our Sixth Form usually require a minimum of five passes at GCSE grades 9 – 4, including Mathematics and English Language. Students will normally also need to have at least a grade 6 in the subjects they wish to study at A-Level, but each applicant is considered on an individual basis.

In the meantime, our Sixth Form Prospectus contains links to short videos outlining each subject and we hope that the short film below also offers some insight into life for our Sixth Formers.
