Newport Girls' High School


Sixth Form Admissions

NGHS is open to girls from any secondary school and is not restricted by area of residence. We welcome new pupils into Year 12 on the basis of their academic attainment in GCSE or equivalent examinations and the availability and suitability of courses offered by the school. Those seeking admission to the Sixth Form should obtain an application form from the school, or download a copy from this website returning it to the Admission Office (Sixth Form).

The maximum number for entry to Year 12 in September 2019 is 108 pupils. Priority for admission to Year 12 of the school will be given to pupils progressing into the Sixth Form from Year 11 of the school with the additional places being filled by external applicants.

The entry criterion is as follows:

  • Mathematics and English Language (Grade 5+)*
  • At least a Grade 6 in the subjects you wish to study for A-level (Grade 7 is strongly advised for Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics).
  • A further three GCSEs at Grade 6 or above.

If you are studying BTEC courses, these should be at least at Merit standard and each BTEC course replaces one GCSE (even if it is a double or triple award).

*Any change to these conditions of entry can only be negotiated with the Headteacher.

We look forward to welcoming you to NGHS.
