The Marist VI Form Admission Timeline


Current Marist pupils

Current Marist School pupils continue to VI Form, subject to meeting the GCSE requirements outlined below.

A minimum of 8 GCSEs at grades 9-5, including English and Maths. Pupils should achieve grades 9-6 in subjects they have chosen for A Level, as well as related subjects.


Non-Marist pupils

External pupils looking to join the school need to complete a registration form

Along with the registration fee, a member of our admissions team will then request a personal statement, copy of your most recent school report (including mock GCSE and predicted grades) and your preferred A Level subject choices. An interview is then arranged with our Director of VI Form before a place is offered. In addition to the above, we also request a reference from the pupil’s current school.



For pupils sitting GCSEs or IGCSEs at their current school, any offer will be conditional upon the applicant achieving the minimum grade requirement for VI Form entry.
