Sixth Form

Life in this outstanding, diverse and vibrant Sixth Form is based on firm values and provides not only outstanding academic opportunities but also an environment that enables each student to achieve their full potential, further develop essential life skills and mature as a young person.


Application Process 

  • If you are interested in joining us in the Sixth Form, we ask that you complete an application form. This enables us to keep in touch with you throughout the application process.

  • Prospective Year 12 students are then required to register with us on GCSE results day on 25th August 2021 (external students will upload proof of their GCSE achievements). 

  • Once your results have been verified by us, we will contact you to let you know your next steps.

Pastoral Care 

It is very important that students feel a sense of responsibility towards their studies and should be ready to discuss any difficulties or problems with a form tutor or subject teacher at an early stage. Form tutors have an essential input into any reference including university applications.

School Attendance 

Being a Sixth Former at Calday Grange carries with it certain obligations: attendance during normal school hours is compulsory, and absences from school must be covered by a letter from a parent.

Though Sixth Formers are free to leave the premises at lunchtime, they may not visit licensed premises. Sixth Form students are allowed to drive cars or ride motorcycles to school provided they have passed the driving test and have obtained permission from their Year Head.

Dress & Appearance 

At Calday we recognise that Sixth Form students are young adults forming part of the school community. We have therefore developed a dress code that, we think, reflects their status.

Sixth Form students are expected to dress as they would for a formal business environment. All students should wear a suit and male students must wear a either a Sixth Form school tie or a tie of their choice. If they wear their own tie they must wear a House lapel badge which can be obtained from the Sixth Form office.

In the Sixth Form, students are allowed to wear simple stud earrings but no other facial piercings are permitted. Boys may have a neat beard and/or moustache.
