Dixons Sixth Form Academy

Applications are now open for September 2023 entry. Application deadline 31st December to access all courses.

Admissions process

At Dixons Sixth Form we understand that the process of applying can be a daunting one and appreciate, at times, students can be unaware what stage their application is at and what happens next. Therefore, we have made the application process as simple as possible and throughout the year there are many opportunities for you to stay in touch and ask questions about your courses.

Our admission process

Step 1 - Investigate us and our courses

We run information events in the Autumn term and our website contains information on all our courses and many of our enrichment opportunities. Find out more at one of our Open Evenings on Thursday 20th October and Wednesday 30th November from 5-7:30pm.

Step 2 - Apply

Our applications form is accessible from our website in the Admissions section and we expect applications to be completed by students’ themselves. We are currently accepting applications for students currently in year 11 to start in September 2023. Our deadline is 31st December so students can access all courses.

Step 3 - Attend your application interview

After your application we will keep in touch by email newsletter and then we will invite you to come to an application interview. These interviews take place on a rolling basis and there is no need to be concerned if people you know are invited before you, all students have an equal chance of being offered a place.

Following your application interview, all being well, you will receive a provisional offer of a place.

Step 4 - Accept your provisional place

A provisional place is a place on your agreed courses. We do not operate waiting list as we believe it’s important for you to be able to plan with certainty where you will be studying after GCSEs. However we are significantly oversubscribed so we can only hold provisional places open for students that confirm their intention to study with us.

Step 5 - Attend bridging and welcome events

We will invite you to bridging and new student events on the 10th or 11th of July 2023 to help make the transition from GCSE study to level 3 study. We also give you summer work for each of your courses so you are ready to make a flying start in September.

Step 6 - Enrol

You will be given an appointment for enrolment following your GCSE results! It is important, wherever possible, that students do not take holidays and are available to attend your enrolment interview on the 25th August 2023.
