Admissions Criteria for Sixth Form - 2018 Entry 

Students must have achieved a minimum total of 65 points across their best 10 GCSEs (using the 9 to 1 scale, except that grades of 4 or below count as zero) including 5 or better in each of Mathematics and English Language. [Where unreformed GCSEs have been sat the following scale will be used: A*=9, A=7, B=6, C=5, D or below =0; C or better must be achieved in Maths and English Language]. All offers made during Year 11 are conditional on students fulfilling the above criteria.

There are also subject specific criteria, details of which may be found in the prospectus. Gaining a place does not guarantee a particular course/subject may be followed.

Internal Applicants

Internal applicants transfer to Year 12 provided they have met the criteria above. There is no upper limit to the number of internal students transferring to Year 12.

External Applicants

The Published Admission Number for Year 12 is 55 (external students). In the event of oversubscription, priority will be given to (in order):

1.   Children in Local Authority Care

2.   Academic Ability

Ranked on predicted GCSE grades from their current school.

  • GCSEs already certificated will be counted.
  • The number of grade 9s will be the first measure, then grade 8s and so on.
  • The Judd School will be the sole arbiter of measures of equivalence when students have sat examinations other than GCSE. IGCSE grades are considered to be equal to GCSE grades.

3.   Distance

Where predicted grades are the same students will be further ranked by distance from home to School.

4.   Random Selection

A random selection will be applied should two or more applicants have the same predicted grades and the same distance from home to school.

Following results (August 2018), where applicants (who have not previously been offered a place) have achieved better results than their predicted grades, they will be considered based on the grades achieved and ranked accordingly for any places that become available as a result of other students failing to meet the required entry levels.
