The Headteacher may allow exceptions to these qualification requirements where there is a known reason for a student’s under-achievement at GCSE or where he determines that a student will not impede the progress of other students following the course. The governors will admit 210 students to the Sixth Form per year, basing any decisions if there is severe over-subscription on the Admissions Criteria, copies of which are available here.
The governors will also consider any particular application for a place or course in one of the school’s areas of strength or expertise of science, mathematics, sport (including female sport) and physical education, music and leadership and if they consider the application sufficiently meritorious they will offer a supernumerary place.
Choosing whether to study a BTEC course or combination of GCE A-Levels is an important decision that should be discussed with both your parents and current teachers. For more information about the courses offered at Campion, and how to make your decision, please visit the Choosing Your Course(s) page. If studying A-Levels, you will need to choose 3 options from across the 4 blocks.
The School makes available a bursary for students between the ages of 16 and 19 in certain situations. You can read more about the 16-19 Bursary here.
