Joining the Sixth Form

Our job is to inspire all our girls with a love of learning and to nurture independence of mind. If we do this successfully, our girls will step out with confidence as global citizens of the future.

No-one ever regrets a wonderful education for those all-important A-level years and we always welcome talented and capable young ladies into our Sixth Form (at the beginning of Year 12) to finish off their school years to their maximum potential.

For some parents, providing your daughter with the greatest possible education can come at a huge financial sacrifice for which reason we offer a range of fees assisted places and bursaries for talented girls entering the Sixth Form. To find more about these, please click here.

Sixth Form here at the Maynard Schools provides a distinctly unique and happy experience, where all of our students are supported individually and statistically proven to outperform their peers in the co-educational sector.

Sixth Form Open Evening

We are delighted to welcome prospective students to our Sixth Form Open Evening, held every November We held our 2019 event on Thursday 7 November (2020 date to be confirmed). These evenings are designed to give you and your daughter a valuable insight into life as a Maynard Sixth Former, to meet with the staff as well as our students and discuss the various A-level options.

Sixth Form Taster Day

In addition, we hold an official Taster Day every autumn. We held our 2019 Taster Day on Friday 22 November 2019 (2020 date to be confirmed) for prospective Sixth Form students which provides a great opportunity to meet the staff and experience the Maynard way of life.

Admissions Process

Our Sixth Form admission process involves, in the first instance, completion of our Registration Form which can be downloaded here.

We will then invite your daughter for an interview with the Headmistress, the Director of the Sixth Form and any other relevant Heads of Departments. We will also write to your daughter’s current school to request a reference, latest report and predicted GCSE grades.


If we are then able to offer a place, please note that this is conditional upon your daughter reaching the minimum entry requirements for entry into our Sixth Form, namely:

  • at least six grade 6 GCSEs
  • a minimum of a grade 6 in both Maths and English GCSE
  • a grade 7 in the subjects to be taken at A-level

Students will always be considered on their individual merits.

We then ask parents to sign the accompanying Acceptance Form, having read the Terms & Conditions booklet, and pay a registration fee which secures a place for your daughter.
