Sixth Form Entrants

Up to four fee-paying places may be available in September 2019.  Sixth Form students normally study four A level subjects in year 12 (C block), and continue with three or four subjects at A level or Pre-U level in year 13 (B block).  For details of the curriculum, please see the section headed “The Specialist Years” in the Further Information section of the Admissions booklet or look at the webpage for School Year 12, known at Eton as C block

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 academic GCSEs (or overseas equivalent) at A/7 grade, but in practical terms the level is likely to be higher and competition for the limited number of places is intense.

Applications for 2019 entry have now closed. The Sixth Form fee-paying application form for 2020 entry will be available to download from July 2019. The candidate must submit a completed application form, personal statement and a copy of his unabridged birth certificate 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 3 – 4 days. Parent(s)/guardian(s) will be asked to complete and return a confidential medical report for the Eton school doctor and the House where he will stay during the interviews. 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(s)/guardian(s) must sign an agreement in the application form to pay all due fees and charges (the school fee is likely to be approximately £40,000 for the 2018-2019 academic year).  

An acceptance fee is only payable by those candidates who are offered a Conditional Place. A short statement about the successful candidate will be required from his parent(s)/guardian(s), giving consent to a confidential medical report being submitted by the candidate’s usual doctor to the Eton school doctor. No financial support is available for entry at age 16 to candidates entering through Sixth Form Entry.
