Internal Students

Current Glyn School students who will have attended Year 11 during the 2017/18 academic year are invited to progress into Year 12, providing they meet the entrance criteria. Year 11 Glyn students have priority over the admissions criteria listed below.

External Students

Glyn School welcomes applications for entry to the Sixth Form from male and female external applicants. Acceptance on to a programme of subjects/courses is subject to a student having achieved the entry requirements. Individual subjects may be limited in the number of students they can accommodate.

Application forms received after the deadline of Monday 27 November 2017 will be placed on a separate late applicants’ waiting list.

After the full number of places have been offered in accordance with the admission procedure, a waiting list will be established according to the oversubscription categories. The waiting list will be held on the basis of distance of the student’s permanent place of residence from the school, with those living nearer being given higher propriety within each category. Evidence of permanent residence will be required upon application. Failure to provide evidence may delay or affect the application and offer.

Students whose applications are placed on the waiting list will be informed of the dates of the summer enrolment by email.

External applicants that exceed the number of places available will be placed on a waiting list which will include on time and late applications.  The waiting list will be managed according to the oversubscription criteria categories.

Although every effort will be made to operate the waiting list fairly and admit applicants into the Sixth Form, the school cannot be responsible for applicants’ availability to attend summer enrolment, or which courses may be available at any given time.

Should applications from suitably qualified external students exceed the number of places available, the following oversubscription criteria will apply:

Category 1: Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children

Category 2: Exceptional Social/Medical Need

Category 3: External Students who have a Sibling in the School

Category 4: Children of Staff Employed to Work at Glyn School

Category 5: External students: The remaining places will be allocated on the basis of distance of a student’s permanent residence from the school, with those living nearer being given higher priority.

Further information regarding additional notes in relation to the above categories and full details of our admissions procedures are detailed in our Admissions Criteria for Sixth Form - September 2018 to July 2019 Policy (see link below).

Students will need to reply to confirm whether they are accepting the place or not by Friday 16 March 2018. The reply also enables students to indicate any option changes they wish to make.

Final enrolment takes place on Thursday 23 August 2018 for internal students and on Friday 24 August 2018 for external students. External students will need to bring copies of their GCSE results with them to enroll on to courses  and be accompanied by a Parent or Carer who will need to complete and sign the admissions registration documentation.  A sample PDF copy can be viewed on the Tranisition into Sith Form page so that the required information can be obtained in advance to attending the enrolement day.
