6th form application 2019

Entry Numbers

There will be a maximum of 80 places in Year 12 for admission from Year 11 to the Sixth Form.

Entry Qualifications

To be offered a place in the London Nautical School Sixth Form students will normally have a minimum of 5, 5-9 grades at GCSE including English, and Mathematics.  

To be eligible to pursue a subject at A level students will  be required to have at least a grade 6 in that subject at GCSE or Grade 7 in Maths. 

To be eligible to pursue a vocational route students will normally be expected to have at least a pass with Merit in the BTEC First Diploma.  Detailed requirements will be published in the Sixth Form Prospectus.

Each student follows either a vocational and / or A Levels.  Students following A Levels will normally study three subjects plus the extended project in Year 12.  In some cases a mixture of these qualifications will be offered to ensure the best possible chance of success.

Applicants will be invited to an informal meeting to discuss courses, attendance and punctuality.  On the basis of this meeting applicants will be given either an outright offer, subject to meeting minimum entry conditions or a conditional offer. 

Conditional offers on courses will be made on the basis of mock examination results, teacher predictions of likely GCSE performance. In this case, applicants will be placed on a waiting list.

Offers will be confirmed following the publication of the GCSE results in August.

Volenti Academy

If you wish to be eligible to take part in the London Nautical & Volenti Football Academy Programme you must indicate this on the application form where prompted to do so.  It is recommended that anyone wishing to apply to be part of the academy is playing regular competitive football for their school or club.

Places on the Academy will be limited to 30. Priority will be given based on the following:

1. Attendance at summer training sessions

2. Football Ability

3. GCSE Grades


In the event of there being more applicants achieving the entry qualifications than the number of places available for a particular subject, then the following criteria will apply after the admission of pupils with Statements of Special Educational

Needs where the School is named on the Statement:

  1. Mean GCSE points score including Math’s, English and Science.  Short course scores and vocational course scores will not be considered. Applicants with the highest mean GCSE score will be given priority.
