Transition to Sixth Form


Wolverhampton Grammar School has a dedicated Sixth Form Centre and a reputation for outstanding A Level results. It’s not surprising then that most students in Year 11 choose to stay with us for Sixth Form and a number of students also choose to join us at Year 12 from schools across the West Midlands, Staffordshire and Shropshire counties.

The Sixth Form at Wolverhampton Grammar School offers students opportunities in a range of academic, extra-curricular and skill based areas. The curriculum is shaped around A Levels and qualifications such as the Cambridge Technical Extended Certificates which are academic in focus and which enable students to gain access to 18+ options whether that be leading Russell Group universities like Oxford or Cambridge, vocational degrees and other university courses or higher apprenticeships and sponsored degrees.

All current students who satisfy the entry requirements to Sixth Form will be automatically offered a place. Click here to learn more about entry requirements to Wolverhampton Grammar Sixth Form.
