Admissions into Year 12

We welcome applications to our Sixth Form from both male and female students, whether currently attending our own or any other school

Applications & Admissions

We welcome applications to our Sixth Form from both male and female students, whether currently attending our own or any other school. Each year we welcome many new entrants from other schools, including boys. Our Sixth Form Management Team and Student Leaders provide support for transition, and all students very quickly become valued members of our Sixth Form community.

The entry requirements for the Sixth Form, and the application process for internal and external students is outlined below. All offers are conditional on GCSE results, and therefore, will not be made firm until results and enrolment day.

MGGS is very well organised and we receive lots of support for UCAS and Post-18 plans.

Year 13 Student

Entry Requirements

  • Students must be 16 years of age by 31st August of year of entry into Year 12.

  • Admission to the Sixth Form will be as a result of applicants achieving:

    • At least a grade 5 in either English Language or English Literature
    • At least a grade 5 in Mathematics
    • At least 6 GCSE subjects of grades 9-5
    • The specific entry requirements for each of their chosen subjects. Please note that we adhere to our subject entry criteria strictly, and therefore, students who meet the minimum entry criteria but are not eligible for their chosen subjects will be offered an alternative programme of study.

    Priority will be given to existing students transferring from Year 11 who meet the entrance criteria.

  • In addition, students must meet subject entry requirements, which in most cases require a minimum of Grade 6 in the subject to be studied, or related subjects.

  • If you have been offered a place in the Sixth Form, it is very important that you participate in our Induction Day on Wednesday, 6th July 2022 and you will therefore be expected to attend this event.

  • Enrolment to the Sixth Form will take place on GCSE results day on Thursday, 25th August 2022.  Internal applicants will be invited to enrol in the morning and external applicants will be invited to enrol in the afternoon between 12pm and 2pm

  • If you fail to meet the entry requirements, you will first be advised to consider whether it is appropriate to seek a remark of your GCSE.  If you do not meet the minimum entry requirements you will be offered the opportunity to appeal for a place at the School. Details of this are available on the school website.  If you do not meet the subject entry criteria, you may be offered an alternative programme of study with us for which you are eligible.

Further information can be found in our Sixth Form Curriculum Information Booklet.

Applications for 2022 entry into Sixth Form are now open. If you wish to apply for a place in September 2022, please complete our application form.

Application Procedure
Internal Applicants

  • Internal students have a range of opportunities during the Autumn terms to find out more about the subject we offer to inform your option choices. The Key Stage 4 and 5 Leadership Teams will communicate with students and parents directly about these opportunities.

  • Year 11 students at MGGS will be invited to submit their options choices in December. This initial information enables us to arrange subject option blocks so that as many first choices as possible are met. Therefore, although you will have the opportunity to amend your choices after this time, including at enrolment, it is important to consider these initial decisions carefully.

  • All Year 11 students will have a one-to-one meeting with our Careers and Higher Education Coordinator, and a guidance meeting with a senior member of staff to discuss their ambitions.
