The 2018/19 Sixth Form Prospectus is currently being produced and will be available by the end of the Summer Term 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: Details below are are correct for students currently in Year 11 or above (2016/17 academic year). Curriculum changes affecting Years 7 to 10 will be uploaded to the website as soon as possible.

Colyton Grammar School enjoys a national reputation for the academic standards achieved in the Sixth Form.  The school operates a Sixth Form programme over three years.

Students benefit from high quality teaching and an excellent support programme aimed at helping them to achieve their potential.

Two purpose-built Study Centres provide an excellent environment for private study.

Ofsted Inspectors judged the Sixth Form to be an “impressive feature of the school” and they praised the range of extra-curricular activities available and the opportunities for Sixth Formers to contribute to the life of the school.

The relationship between Sixth Form students and staff is very much one of purposeful partnership.

In the Sixth Form Prospectus (link below) you will find answers to some frequently asked questions and descriptions of the subjects offered.

It should be noted that we operate a three year Sixth Form programme, starting in Year 11.  External candidates would have to be willing to go back to join our Year 11 and unfortunately, the school is not funded to allow this.

The Planned Admission Number (PAN) for Year 12 is zero, as this is not a normal point of entry to this school.  The PAN for Year 11 is 120 and the school is currently full.  It is unlikely that there will be any vacancies for 2015 entry to Year 11. Applicants would be admitted after August results if, a) the entry criteria are met, and b) a place becomes available. There are no guarantees that a student’s subject requirements will be available.
