Applying for Sixth Form

The application window for 2019 entry to the Sixth Form is now open. 

If you are interested in entering the Sixth Form at Heckmondwike Grammar School, your first step, if you are new to the school, should be to come along for a visit. If you are not able to attend the Open Evening then contact the school to make arrangements to visit on an alternative date.

Which combination of A Level courses will be right for me?

We offer a wide range of A Level courses, some of which you will have studied up to Year 11, and others which are only available in the Sixth Form. All courses require students to show high levels of dedication and commitment to their studies.

A key factor in achieving success at Sixth Form is selecting the most appropriate courses at the start of Year 12. When choosing the subjects you will study, it is important to find out about any subject requirements for particular careers you are interested in, but also to choose subjects that you will enjoy.

We want all students to leave our Sixth Form having been successful in their subjects and being able to progress to the destination of their choice.
