Sixth Form Entry Booklet

The Sixth Form 2024 Entry Booklet gives details of the courses and options available at the Royal Grammar School. It is aimed at both potential Sixth Formers already at the Royal Grammar School as well as new entrants to the School. We will be pleased to give further advice to prospective entrants when you visit the School. We welcome applicants from all types of school, for day and boarding places, and are delighted by the record of successes students new to the Sixth Form have achieved at A Level and beyond.

The Royal Grammar School welcomes applications from external students for Sixth Form.  Please refer to our Admissions Policies (Day & Boarding) for full details.
