Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

Entry to Sixth Form

There are over 200 Sixth Form students at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, many of whom have progressed from Year 11 but also a significant number of students who have joined from other schools.

All our students follow a full A Level course studying at least three A Level subjects. New Sixth Form students must be able to demonstrate that they are capable of higher-level study meaning you need a minimum of four GCSE passes at grade 6 plus a further two at grade 4 (including maths and English).

All potential Sixth Form students must complete the application form below and are welcome to attend the open evening in November. If you are an existing QEGS student, you will receive information through career lessons and tutor time about the process of joining the Sixth Form. Students joining from another school are also invited to attend one of our Sixth Form Applications Afternoons (see below) – giving you the opportunity to see the school in operation, to speak to students who have joined us from other schools and to ask staff any questions before completing an application form.

Please note that 22nd February is the last date for unrestricted subject choices. After this point, any changes to A Level choices must be made by completing a ‘Request for Course Change’ – please email if you require this form. Any offers of provisional places would normally be made towards the end of the spring term. 

All prospective Sixth Form students are expected to attend our Sixth Form Induction Week, after GCSEs have finished.

Application Afternoons

Application afternoons are a chance for prospective students from other schools to visit the Sixth Form in normal school time.  Parents are welcome to attend.  Existing Sixth Form will act as tour guides and you will have the opportunity to talk to a member of the senior staff who will give you advice on Sixth Form courses and alternatives.
