Course entry requirements

If you are applying for A-level courses, we would ideally like you to have a Grade 6 or higher in those subjects you wish to study at A-level, as we believe this will give you the best chance of success. However, many students who get Grade 5 will also be able to be successful so please discuss your options choices with Mr Simon Henderson (our Head of Sixth Form).

If you are applying for BTEC courses then you should have a pass in that course, or in an equivalent qualification, at Level 2.

All students applying to Sixth Form should have a Grade 4 in an English GCSE qualification and in mathematics.

You should select four courses you are interested in on our initial option form and return it to reception at Teesdale School and Sixth Form by 30 November 2019. To apply after this date, please contact us directly for an initial discussion.

Interviews are arranged during November and December to discuss your subject choices and your aspirations for the future. 

Applications from Year 11 students from all schools are welcomed.

If you have any questions about the admissions process or your options for applying to Teesdale Sixth Form, please contact Dr Simon Henderson, Head of Sixth Form at
