Welcome to the Sixth Form at Baylis Court School. I am very proud of our Sixth Form and the opportunities we provide to our students. Year on year, our students achieve a 100% pass rate and, this year, our girls excelled achieving the highest A Level results ever seen in subjects such as Religious Studies.
As well as the academic benefits of studying at Baylis Court School, sixth formers enjoy a well furnished common room and the use of our canteen.
Please take the time to look through the sections of our website. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mr I. Wright
Head of Sixth Form
Excellent attendance is an important factor which will enable you to achieve success in the Sixth Form. We have developed a Sixth Form Attendance Requirement which is important for you to read. If you have any questions, please ask.
SIXTH FORM APPLICATIONS FOR SEPTEMBER 2017 ENTRY
We are accepting applications for entry to our sixth form in September 2017. Please read the following information carefully.
Change of Sixth Form Entry Requirements 2017-2018
The entry requirements have been adjusted for some of our Sixth Form subjects due to the Ofqual announcement of what represents a Good pass and a Standard Pass. This table supersedes what is stated in the prospectus.
If any of the Baylis Court School entry requirements include the need to achieve a Maths grade 6, we will accept a high grade 5, therefore candidates will not be disadvantaged if they are sitting the Foundation Maths paper.
The deadline for applications is Friday 20th January, 2017..

- promote life-long learners;
- develop individual responsibility, tolerance and considerationi for others;
- foster the ability to work together co-operatively and with an appreciation of group success;

- build a partnership between school, home and the wider community.
Baylis Court School Entry to Year 13 from Year 12
The policy below outlines the requirements that Year 12 students must meet to enter Year 13 for their final year of study.
Entry in Year 13 requires three subject passes (not including Extended Project). A pass grade is a Grade A to E. Any student who achieves 2 or more U grades in the end of year examinations will not continue to Year 13. Any student who does not have 3 pass grades A to E (not including Extended Project) will not continue to Year 13.
We will of course support any student who fails to meet the necessary criteria to move from Year 12 to Year 13 with alternative routes for their academic development.
