Sixth Form Applications

Students apply directly to the college by completing an application form – either online through the school website or by hand. Students from Norfolk can apply through the ‘Help You Choose’ website at helpyouchoose.org if they wish. Applications should be made as soon as possible. We welcome applications from Hartismere pupils and those from any other schools.  

All applicants meet with sixth form staff to discuss their proposed subject choices and future plans. We review subject choices after GCSE results, as well as at the start of term in year 12. Most A level subjects require students to have obtained at least a grade 6 in that subject (or a similar one) at GCSE. Students who wish to study maths, computing or physics must achieve a grade 7 in maths at GCSE (an 8 if further maths is chosen). Most students will have achieved at least 5 good GCSE passes, as well as meeting the individual academic requirements for each subject area. 

Our college open evening is in November and this is an excellent opportunity for students to ask questions about courses and how they are taught and assessed, as well as to see the school environment. 


Information about travel to and from the college is available from our office. Students in Suffolk should apply for transport via the County website. Students travelling from Norfolk should contact the Norfolk County Council Transport department. All students, irrespective of where they live, should apply for a pass before the start of term. 

Travel is available for students who travel from Metfield, Harleston, Brockdish, Needham, Dickleburgh and surrounding areas. Information about this bus route is available from the sixth form office. 

Students may park cars, bikes or mopeds in the College car park. 

Discretionary Support Fund 

Students can apply for the Discretionary Support Fund if they need financial support. Information about the fund is available from www.gov.uk/1619-bursary-fund and a booklet and application form are available from the sixth form office.
