Submitting your Application

Please apply through the Sixth Form Application tab above and complete the correct form depending on whether you are a current Bishop Challoner student or if you are joining us from another secondary school.

Meetings take place from February with one of the Sixth Form Team, where you will be asked to bring your most recent academic report with predicted GCSE grades. This is the ideal opportunity for you to fi nd out more about Bishop Challoner Sixth Form College and discuss your subject choices. It is also a chance for us to fi nd out more about you. If the meeting is successful you will receive a letter making you a conditional offer of a place, dependent on you meeting our entry requirements (see above).

If you do not currently attend Bishop Challoner Catholic College, you will be invited to a taster day that will take place during the summer term, which will give you the chance to sample Sixth Form lessons and meet other students before September. 

Enrolment takes place on GCSE results day, which is  Thursday 22nd August 2024. On this day you will have the opportunity to review your original course choices. Full details of these arrangements will be sent to you in the summer term.
