Stage 1: Open Evening
Our Sixth Form Open Evening takes place on 11th October 2023, providing an excellent opportunity for all students to learn more about our Sixth Form including the courses we offer. We will attach further detail as the date nears.
Stage 2: Making an application
Current St John Payne Students will receive an invitation via email allowing them to register their interest in our Sixth Form and allow them to indicate the subjects they would like to study at A Level. External Students should complete the online application form by 4pm on Friday 29th March 2024.

Deadline for application is 29th March 2024.
Internal applicants will be sent a link to start their registration.
Stage 3: Informal Meetings
Both current St John Payne students and external applicants will be invited to attend a short individual meeting with a member of the School Leadership Team to discuss their application. These meetings take place in March and April. We will discuss students' future plans and advise on suitable pathways. Successful external applicants will receive a formal letter confirming the offer of a place. They will need to let us know if they accept the offer at this stage. All current SJP students are offered a place in our Sixth Form providing they meet the entry requirements detailed in the prospectus and have demonstrated good behaviour for learning throughout Key Stage 4.
Stage 4: GCSE Results Day
Students who have indicated that they will be returning to the Sixth Form at St John Payne will need to formally confirm that this is still their intention by completing the final stage of their online application by 8pm on GCSE Results Day.
External students need to contact the school on receipt of their GCSE results. Those who have met the entry
requirements will be given the link so that they can also complete the online application form.
Stage 5: September Enrolment
All students who have accepted their provisional offer of a place in our Sixth Form will be invited to formally enrol for their A Level subjects on the first day of term in September.
