Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at St Edward’s

The Sixth Form academic programme at St Edward’s is rigorous and rewarding. Pupils are expected to be self-motivated and to work hard, and are supported in their endeavours by a wide network of specialists and advisors. Academic work is enhanced by a stimulating programme of speakers, academic societies, visits and numerous enrichment opportunities in Oxford and in London, nationally and internationally.

Higher Education and Careers guidance is comprehensive. Specialist advice is available on all aspects of applying to university in the UK, the US and Europe. There is also tailored support for those applying to Oxford and Cambridge. The Careers Education Department provides careful monitoring of pupils’ career options in a robust programme embedded in the academic timetable. Find out more about our Careers and Higher Education Department here.

Being at school in a world-famous university city, as part of a friendly, engaged community, means that the opportunities are limitless. Join – or start – an academic society, take up an instrument, put on a play, join a sports team, draw on the academic excellence of Oxford University, see plays, gigs and concerts, hear top speakers – or simply enjoy the sheer beauty of the city.


Sixth Form Entry

St Edward’s welcomes approximately 40 pupils into the Lower Sixth (Y12) each year to begin A Level courses or the IB Diploma.

Pupils for whom English is not their first language, that have taken the Cambridge English Test / IELTS or equivalent, are asked to submit their test results to us together with a recent school report. This will assist us in gauging their level of English before they submit a formal application to attend the School.


International Admissions

St Edward’s believes in educating its pupils in an internationally conscientious environment, where an understanding and celebration of different cultures is the norm. We therefore welcome applications from international pupils at Year 12.

Worldwide educational provision varies enormously from country to country, so we ask all prospective pupils to take a cognitive abilities test for screening purposes. This test measures ability over four areas: Non-Verbal, Verbal, Quantitative and Spatial Reasoning. Those who are successful will be invited to attend formal entrance tests and an interview.
