Each year the College welcomes around 20 new male and female students into the Sixth Form.
The aim of the admissions process is to identify potential. We are looking for well-rounded students whose interests stretch beyond the confines of the curriculum and who can contribute to the rich life of the College and our community.
Candidates will be required to achieve a minimum of seven GCSEs or IGCSEs at grade 6 or above, with at least grade 7 in the three subjects they will be studying at A-level.
For the more technical subjects (mathematics, science and modern languages) a grade 8 is required.

If you would like to be considered for a place in our Sixth Form you should submit a registration form, a copy of your end of Year 10 school report, and pay a non-refundable registration fee.
For 2022 entry, the deadline is Monday 18 October 2021
You will be required to complete a Candidate Information Form, a Personal Statement and a Scholarship Application Form, if relevant. You should submit these with the registration form.
Based on the information you provided in your application, you may be shortlisted and invited to attend the College for an interview with a member of our Academic Leadership Team.
Due to the volume of applications we receive, we aren’t able to invite all candidates for an interview. We do not wish to convey false hope where we believe there is little chance of a place being offered.
If you have applied for a scholarship you will, in addition to a general interview, also be invited for an assessment and interview in the subject(s) for which you are applying.
Conditional places will be offered around 6 December 2021. Subsequent places may be offered to those on the waiting list at any time up to the following September.
These offers are made following careful evaluation of the performance of every shortlisted candidate. To do this we look at:
- your performance in the assessments
- how you came across in the interview
- school references and reports
- your personal statement
We also consider the make up of the year group as a whole, ensuring a good balance of personalities, interests and talents. This is a vital part of the process, for students to be successful it is important that they are part of a happy, well-balanced community.
Your conditional offer of a place at Epsom will be confirmed on receipt of your GCSE grades.
