Sixth Form

At Moulsham High School we believe that our Sixth Form offers a real opportunity for all students to achieve success. We are very proud of our Sixth Form and the school’s strong reputation in the community has been spearheaded by the drive and initiative of our senior students.

If you join our Sixth Form we will expect you to work hard in a broad range of challenging courses, but, at the same time, make a wider contribution to the school and community at large.  You will be working with likeminded students in small groups and receive support and guidance from a range of dedicated, specialist staff.
 
As a Sixth Former you will have access to a number of excellent facilities to aid your learning, as well as areas exclusive to senior students. We also hope that the enrichment programme, opportunities for responsibility and extra-curricular activities will ensure that you develop more than just your academic abilities.
 
At Moulsham we will give you every opportunity to succeed.  Like many students that have gone before you we hope you will continue this strong tradition and take the next step into higher education and the workplace.

Below is a link to a Radio 4 programme ‘My life on paper’ which is about writing The Personal Statement.

Across Britain, sixth formers are preparing to write and embellish their UCAS personal statements as they apply to university.

Actress, playwright and mother Jane Godber explores how creative you can get in 4000 characters - the limits of a personal statement - what if you really had to tell the truth about your life?

If you wrote that the most influential people in your life are not Jack Kerouac and Tennyson, but your mum or your dad, who is paralysed. That you are more mature than most sixth-formers because you've been the main carer for your mum and sisters since you were thirteen.

Jane hears from students, admissions tutors and heads of sixth-form, as well as creative writing tutors Ian Marchant and Helen Cross. She also attempts to write her own short biog, with the help of daughter Martha and a large packet of marshmallows.’

It is really informative and gives them a proper understanding of the problems they will face and the things they will have to consider. You could play it in form time.

Entry Requirements & Applying

To study A-levels, or a combination of A-levels and BTECs, students must currently have a minimum of 38 points from their best eight GCSE results and meet the entry requirements of the subject they wish to study (see accompanying course guide). A grade 4 in both English and Mathematics is also required and students who do not achieve this will be required to re-sit GCSE English and/or Mathematics in Year 12.

To study just Level 3 BTEC courses, students must have a minimum of 30 points from their best eight GCSE results. A grade 4 in both English and Mathematics is also required; students will be required to re-sit these subjects if they do not meet this requirement.

The total number of places available for Year 12 students is 180. We welcome applications from students at other schools. Once an application has been received we will contact your existing school for a reference and a place will be offered provided that the reference and forecast grades meet our requirements.
