Application Process

Prospective students can now apply to join St. Robert of Newminster Sixth Form by using the online application form. Following the submission of the application, students will be contacted by the Sixth Form team to confirm their application. This year’s Open Evening will be an online event on Thursday 28th January.


Before starting the Sixth Form, students will be interviewed by phone in order to establish that the right choices are being made, and to give students an opportunity to clarify their options. Telephone interviews will take place from February onwards. It may be that the subject choices of some pupils may need revising in the light of their GCSE results and these changes can be discussed once the results are published. Staff will be available in order to advise on this. Year 12 students should have their timetables established and lessons started during the first week of term. Further details of the induction process and final option choices will be posted to all successful applicants.
