Applicants will not be accepted into the Sixth Form if they have neither Maths nor English at GCSE grade 4. In addition most courses require specific subject GCSE grades e.g. to take Mathematics a grade 6 in GCSE Mathematics is a requirement. Such specific course requirements are clearly stated on the relevant subject page in the 6th Form Prospectus.
