You can apply to multiple sixth forms for A level transfer or if looking to move schools. However, it’s important to check each institution’s policies on transfers and ensure you meet their application requirements.

3. How many sixth form courses can you take?

Typically, students enrol in three A level courses at sixth form, though some may take four (or perhaps even more). This choice is influenced by career goals, academic ability, and school policy. For A level transfer, students often need to continue with their existing courses or may need to negotiate adjustments with the new institution. At Greene’s, most of our students take between one and four A levels, with three being the standard.

4. Can you enrol in two sixth forms at once U.K.?

Enrolling in two sixth forms simultaneously in the U.K. is unusual due to logistical challenges and full-time commitments. However, in rare cases, some institutions may allow it, particularly for students pursuing diverse subjects or specialised programs. Clear communication and coordination between both schools would be essential for successful participation in such arrangements. At Greene’s, although most of our students are full-time (we currently have over 150 full-time students), some choose to pair their studies with us with institutions elsewhere. At the end of the day, it’s about doing what’s feasible and best for your studies.

5. Can you be refused sixth form?

Yes, admission to a sixth form can be denied based on factors like academic performance or behavioural issues. The number of sixth forms one can apply to varies, typically allowing multiple applications. Applying to several increases the chance of acceptance and provides alternatives if one is refused. Researching requirements and meeting deadlines is crucial for successful applications.
