How to apply for a place

It is crucial that anyone wanting to enrol at The Crest Academy’s Sixth Form Centre is on the right course to ensure their future success. Your GCSE results will determine what you can study, and advice and guidance will be provided throughout the year and finalised on enrollment.

Priority goes to Crest Academy students who meet entry grade requirements. Next stage would be students who live in the local area close to the school.

To truly get a feel of what it means to be a student at our Academy we thoroughly recommend that you visit us. At an open event you can meet and speak informally to teaching staff, you can seek guidance on your sixth form options from our in-house experts and you will have plenty of opportunity to tour the academy grounds.

If you would like to visit the 6th Form outside of open events, please contact us so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.
