16+ admissions

We welcome applications at 16+. The vast majority of pupils stay on following GCSEs, but additional places are available for external candidates wishing to join a vibrant, active and friendly Sixth Form.


If a candidate is applying from overseas they should follow the Boarding: International Admissions procedure

The qualification for Sixth Form entry for external candidates is 44 points (or equivalent) from the best 6 IGCSE/GCSE subjects. Additionally, there are specific entry requirements for each A Level subject.

16+ prospective pupils are encouraged to attend the dedicated virtual 16+ Open Evening held in the Autumn Term of Year 11 (see below details). We ask candidates to register for the evening beforehand. Please contact the Registrar to book a place (email: [email protected]).

The virtual evening includes presentations regarding the Sixth Form and also an opportunity to meet Caterham staff and pupils. Offers and all Academic Scholarships will be made on the basis of candidates’ performance during their interview, in addition to predicted GCSE grades and current school reports.
