Sixth Form (16-18)

1. Open Mornings

You are welcome to join us for a Whole School Open Morning, which is held on the first Saturday of October and the early May bank holiday each year, where you will be able to hear our Headmaster speak, meet our teachers and take a tour of the Senior School by one of our Prefect or young Oswestrians. You are also welcome to stay and enjoy a delicious school lunch.

2. Taster Days/Nights

We can arrange for your child to spend a taster day and/or night with us, at a time to suit you, so that they can get to know Oswestry School better. Your child will be accompanied by a 'buddy' from the same year group to sample a mixture of academic lessons, co-curricular activities, sport, social time, meals and, possibly, time in one of our boarding houses.

3. Individual Visit

Book an individual visit at your convenience to meet the Headmaster, Mr Julian Noad, or a member of the Senior Leadership Team, and enjoy a full tour of the Senior School by a Prefect. Please allow two hours for this visit.

Register with us

We encourage you to register with us by completing our Registration Form and fee as soon as you are ready; once we have this, you are then included on our list of applicants for the appropriate year and will be contacted for taster days and scholarships. Please contact the Admissions Office before registering to ensure we have places remaining.

We would like to make this process as smooth as possible for our prospective families, so please do contact us at any stage if you would like further clarification.


Sixth Form Entry Procedures

Entry to the Sixth Form is based on an interview and a confidential report from a pupil's current school (an additional mathematics test is requested for potential international pupils). For pupils where English is not their first language, an English assessment is also required.

All pupils are expected to achieve a minimum of five GCSEs (or equivalent), plus a grade 6 in subjects they wish to study at A Level.
