      Emanuel aims to recruit up to 20 suitable students to join our sixth form each year.

       

      We are looking for students who show a genuine engagement with their learning and will enjoy the high level of support we give students when applying to universities in the UK and abroad, art school, drama school and music conservatoires.
       
      Open evening: Tuesday 18th September 5pm-7pm
      Assessment day: Saturday 3rd November

       

      When making an application, students will be asked to submit their report from the end of year 10. A reference from their Head of Year, or equivalent, and GCSE predictions, will be requested from their school. (Applicants to the sixth form should be expecting to achieve a minimum of 18 points at GCSE where 9 = 5; A*/8 = 4; A/7 = 3; B/6 = 2 and C/5 = 1, as well as As or above in their chosen A level subjects.)

      External applicants to the sixth form will be also required to complete three 45 minute exams. The two best scores from these papers will be taken into account. 

      * Maths: a non-calculator paper. Problem-solving skills and basic skills, including algebra, will be assessed.

      * English: a number of questions in response to a literary piece, followed by an argumentative/persuasive piece of writing.

      * General Paper: multiple choice questions and one from a choice of essays relating to humanities and science themes.

      Offers of sixth form places will be made by 1st December.

       

      Criteria for acceptance at 10+, 11+ and 13+

      The minimum criteria for an offer to be made are:

      1. All exams passed

      2. Satisfactory headteacher's reference

      3. Satisfactory school report

      4. Satisfactory interview

      Exam Concessions

      If you are seeking special exam arrangements of any kind (including extra time or use of computer), written request and supporting documentation such as an Educational Psychologist’s report must be received before 9th November 2018.

      Exam concession requests are reviewed in line with the requirements of the Joint Council for Qualifications and what is allowed for external exams. The Head’s decision on exam concession requests is final. The school will confirm in writing which, if any, special arrangements will be made for the candidate. Candidates must bring the letter of confirmation to the entrance exam.

      If you have an Educational Psychologist’s report you must supply this information if you accept the offer of a place.

      Sibling Policy

      Emanuel School has a sibling policy. Applicants who have a sibling currently at the school need to meet the minimum pass mark in the exams and have a satisfactory report and reference to be offered a place. The pass mark is 60% in English, Maths and if applying for 13+ Language and Science. For verbal reasoning the pass mark is 110 (standardised score).

      The admissions procedure for September 2020 and beyond

      There will be no cap on registrations for any entry point for those looking to enter the school in September 2020 and beyond. Registration will be open from two years before the time of entry through to the October before the year of entry, irrespective of the number of registrations.

      We will continue to interview every candidate one to one at 10+ and 11+.

      We hope this change will mean prospective parents and pupils are able to take their time to decide if they would like to make an application and have the opportunity to visit the school before registering.

      There will be no change to our 13+ and 16+ entry process which will continue to be uncapped.

      Candidates at 10+ and 11+ will continue to sit papers in English, Maths and Verbal reasoning

      We would like to take this opportunity to reiterate that there will be no change to our sibling policy

      We appreciate the effort that goes into every application and thank you for your interest in Emanuel School.
