Each year, King's welcomes a substantial number of new joiners into the Sixth Form from other schools. Places are awarded on the basis of GCSE results, an interview with the Principal and on the report from a pupil's current school.
To enter the Sixth Form, students are expected to have achieved five GCSE passes at Grade C or above. Students will generally have attained a Grade B or above in the subjects they wish to study at A level, although for subjects such as Mathematics, Languages and the Sciences, an A or above is expected.
Scholarships - Academic, Music and Sport may be available to talented pupils. Please see the downloads opposite for full details.
Together with most HMC schools, King’s Rochester expects the majority of Sixth Form pupils to study three subjects at A level.
With the changes being made to A levels by the Government, all A level subjects will be linear from September 2017. A linear subject means that all of the examinations needed to obtain an A level in that subject will be taken at the end of two years.
In addition to A levels, some pupils also take the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). This enables them to extend their academic interests and to develop some of the skills useful for university. This qualification, worth half an A level, is highly regarded by universities.
If you wish to apply for a Sixth Form place at King's Rochester, please complete the Registration Form and return it to the School. A registration fee of £100 and copy of your child’s birth certificate must accompany the form. For details on the Admissions process, please see our Admissions section.
