Godolphin has a bespoke assessment which your daughter will be invited to complete approximately 12 months prior to entry.
Sixth Form entry is based on an interview and written papers, usually in each of a candidate’s proposed Sixth Form subjects. We also ask her existing Head for a reference and, if taking (I)GCSE examinations, she will be expected to gain a minimum of five subjects at grade B/5 or above with a minimum of A/7 grades in those subjects she expects to study in the Sixth Form.
All students already at Godolphin have already earned their place in our Sixth Form.
Our bespoke post-16 curriculum is tailored around the needs and interests of each student. The Fourth Year Sixth Form Discovery Day provides an initial opportunity for the girls to explore their choices, and in the Fifth Year they can finalise their decision at the Sixth Form Open Evening. Option choices are made in February when the girls have a one-to-one interview with a transition tutor whose job is to make sure they have explored all options and are making the right decisions. We don’t use option blocking when students are selecting their A-levels, but instead devise a new timetable each year to reflect the year group’s choices. This means that most girls can study whatever combination of subjects they choose.
