Making Your Choice

Most students will pick three subjects to study in Sixth Form. If you are predicted to get high grades in the majority of your subjects, then you may decide to apply for four subjects. When deciding on your choice of subjects it is important to reflect on what you enjoy and how you learn. You should also take your GCSE grades and your future career aspirations into account.

Entry Requirements

To join Cheney Sixth Form, you must achieve at least 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 and above including Maths and English Literature or Language. You must also gain the individual entry requirements for your chosen options.

Please read our Subject Guide, on Our Subjects page, which outlines the subjects on offer and entry requirements.
