How to Apply

Huish Sixth welcomes applicants from across the county. We are the sixth form of choice for many students including those beyond our catchment area. We can arrange tours of Huish Sixth for you and your family please contact us

  • Open Evening

    We will be holding our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 4 January 2024, 5pm-7.30pm. We look forward to seeing you at the event. Please note that there is no need to book your place.

  • Application Process

    Read through the prospectus and course information carefully. As a guideline we would recommend that most students who have achieved five grades at level 6 or above should consider three to four A Levels. Many of you will already have had a careers or guidance interview and you should consider the ideas in your decision making. Complete the application form to indicate the courses of interest.

    After you have completed your application you will be invited to attend a meeting to discuss your application. This will take place within four weeks of your application being received

Informed Choice

Informed Choice The Russell Group is an umbrella organisation that represents 20 of the UK’s leading universities. It recently published ‘Informed Choices’, its first ever guide to Post-16 subject choices. ‘Informed Choices’, provided in collaboration with the Institute of Career Guidance, is aimed at students considering A level and equivalent options. It includes advice on the best subject combinations for a wide range of university courses as well as advice on the best choices if you don’t know what you want to study after school and need to keep your options open.

The document contains a wealth of information about Post-16 subjects, and the best combinations for accessing a range of undergraduate courses. ‘Informed Choices’ is explicit about one thing; students wishing to gain entry to Russell Group Universities should study at least two facilitating subjects at A level. These subjects are:

  • Mathematics and Further Mathematics
  • English Literature
  • Physics 
  • Biology
  • Chemistry 
  • Geography
  • History
  • Languages (Classical and Modern)
