Sixth Form Entrants

Applications for Sixth Form Entry 2021 (fee paying) are now open. Candidates should apply using this link.

Boys who are studying at a UK independent school, state school, or overseas school may apply for Sixth Form Entry, for which there is no financial assistance available. Up to four places may be available each year.

Any available places will be offered to boys of a high academic standard who are also likely to make a notable contribution to school life in sport or in the arts. The minimum qualifying standard is six GCSEs (or overseas equivalent) at grade 7, but in practical terms the level is likely to be significantly higher and competition for the limited number of places is intense.

The candidate must submit a completed application form, personal statement and a copy of his unabridged birth certificate and passport in order to be considered. A full report from his current school must also be submitted. 

Short-listed candidates will be notified in October and invited to Eton in November for interviews and assessment over 2-3 days. Places will be offered in December; a candidate may be asked if he is willing to go on a waiting list in case places become available at a later date (as late as during the summer break).

Parent / guardian must sign an agreement in the application form to pay all due fees and charges (as an indication, the school fee for academic year 2019-2020 was set at £42,500).

An acceptance fee is only payable by those candidates who are offered a Conditional Place.
