How to apply for a place at sixth form

Apply for a 6th form place

The responsibility for determining the admissions policy for community sixth forms in secondary schools is that of the local authority. Administration of sixth form admissions is delegated by the local authority to the community secondary schools. The Bulmershe School is currently the only community secondary school in the Wokingham Borough. 

The academy secondary schools within the Wokingham Borough have Academy Trust Boards to set and administer their own admissions arrangements for sixth form. Therefore, this policy does not apply to: St.Crispins, The Forest, The Holt, Maiden Erlegh, The Emmbrook, The Piggott School, or Waingels College.

You can view the admissions policy, find out how to apply and view the prospectus for each school by visiting their website:

Appealing the place you've been offered

If you haven't been offered a place at the school sixth form you wanted, you can submit an appeal to the school directly.
