Admission Criteria

What should I study?

At Christ the King, our subject choices enable you to unlock every opportunity and ambition when you leave our Sixth Form.

Most of our students go to university, many to Russell Group universities and others choose to take up degree and higher apprenticeships.

Current CTK students must predominantly show an attitude to learning score of at least 2 and an ATL of 1 or 2 in the subjects they wish to take.

External students must have a positive reference from their previous educational institution.

All our students need a minimum of:

  • Grade 4 in either English Language or English Literature
  • Grade 4 in Maths

In total five Grade 4’s are required.

It is recommended that you secure a Grade 5 at GCSE in the subject you wish to study.

Additional academic entry requirements are dependent on option choices.

For example:

  • If you want to study Mathematics or Further Maths at A Level, you will need  a minimum of Grade 6 at GCSE in Mathematics.
  • If you want to study a Modern Foreign Language (Spanish or French), you will need a Grade 6 at GCSE in that subject.
  • If you want to study Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Geography, Physics or Psychology, you will need a Grade 5 in Mathematics in addition to the minimum CTK Post 16 entry requirements. Please note: If you secure a high Grade 4 in Maths, access to these subjects will be made on an individual basis in discussion with subject teacher specialists.
