Application Procedure

Internal Applications

Students will receive support on applications for OPGS Sixth Form in school and will use SIMS Options to select their A level choices.

The closing date for internal applications is 18th December 2021.

External Applications

External applicants can apply for a place in the Sixth Form from Monday 1st November 2021 onwards. Applications should be made through kentchoices.co.uk site.

The closing date for external applications is 31st January 2022.

In the case of external applicants, we will call for references upon receipt of the application; we will be requesting information on your predicted grades, in addition to a report on your effort, conduct and contribution to the extra-curricular life of your school.

For internal candidates we will look at the same information and will discuss your suitability for A Level studies with your Director of Study.

Meetings to consider applications for sixth form places may take place in January – March 2022 when applicants will meet with one of the Sixth Form Leadership Team. Students should ensure that they have their most up to date school report with them. Offer letters will be sent out in the spring and in most cases will be conditional offer letters confirming that the student has a place in the Sixth Form subject to their GCSE results meeting the school’s entry requirements.

Please contact the school if you wish to make a late application.
