Course entry requirements
If you are applying for A-level courses, we would ideally like you to have a Grade 6 or higher in those subjects you wish to study at A-level, as we believe this will give you the best chance of success. However, many students who get Grade 5 will also be able to be successful so please discuss your options choices with Mr Michael Laidlaw (Head of Sixth Form).
If you are applying for BTEC courses then you should have a pass in that course, or in an equivalent qualification, at Level 2.
All students applying to Sixth Form should have a Grade 4 in an English GCSE qualification and in mathematics.
You should select four courses you are interested in based on information from the Open Evening and complete the initial option form which will be discussed during interviews.
To apply after 29th March 2019, please contact us directly for an initial discussion.
If you have any questions about the admissions process or your options for applying to the Sixth Form at Bedlington Academy, please contact Mr Michael Laidlaw, Head of Sixth Form.
