16+ Lower Sixth (Year 12)

Candidates are welcome to apply for entry to the Haileybury Sixth Form to study either for A levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma.

Upon initial enquiry, candidates are requested to provide a school report to the Registrar. If the report meets our minimum entrance criteria of six GCSE Level 6’s or equivalent, successful candidates are then invited to register and visit Haileybury. Entry is by competitive examination using Haileybury’s own examinations which are taken at school in November of the year prior to entry.

International students should sit a UKiset test to assess their level of functional English ahead of the Entrance Examinations.

The Sixth Form Admissions process will consist of the following:

  • Online cognitive abilities test. These tests let us understand the learning profile of the boys and girls and test their academic potential
  • A choice of two academic subject papers. These papers have been prepared so that no specific prior knowledge is required – they are a chance for pupils to demonstrate their thinking within a subject discipline. Decisions over which subjects to sit should be taken carefully, and should reflect the strengths of the pupil
  • Interview with a member of staff.

Pupils wishing to study Mathematics at either A level or Higher Level for the IB must select Mathematics as one of their two academic subject papers.

More information on how to apply can be found in our Admissions Information booklet.
