Your Subject Choices

Choosing courses at this point does not commit you to a course; there will be the opportunity to discuss and change courses during the interview stage.

Please choose four subjects in order of preference if you are intending to study A-Levels.

Please choose the equivalent of three subjects if you intend to study a National Diploma (one National Diploma and one A-Level).

If you choose Further Maths you also have to choose one of the Maths options.

Personal Statement

Please write a statement in support of your application, detailing your reasoning for choosing specific subjects, and outlining any wider contribution you feel you may be able to make at Sixth Form level. You may attach this as a word-processed document if you wish.

Extra Information

Interview Process

Once we have received all applications we will shortlist students and write a letter inviting you for an interview.

Interviews will be conducted at Hall Cross or at your current school. We will indicate the location of the interview in the letter we send you.

If you are applying for an art based subject you may be asked to bring an example of your work.

At the interview, subject to our being satisfied that it is in your best interest, we will make you a conditional offer of a place at Hall Cross Sixth Form. This conditional element of the offer will reference your GCSE performance.

We aim to have made all conditional offers by the end of April.
