The Sixth Form at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School offers Full Boarding places as well as the ‘Non Boarding Package’ which offers students the benefits of the extended day, but without the overnight stay.  By offering these options we are able to support students in class as well as outside the classroom and help them develop the life skills they will need to be successful at university and in employment.

Please note that Saturday morning school is compulsory for all students. 

Entry requirements

The academic entry requirements for admittance into the Sixth Form are:

  1. A minimum of five GCSE grades 4-9. Students who do not secure a minimum of Grade 4 in either GCSE English or Maths should retake the relevant subject(s) alongside their chosen Sixth Form courses.
  2. The minimum grade requirement for each subject that the student wishes to study as outlined in the Sixth Form Course Information Booklet.

The Sixth Form team will use ENIC, the official provider of international qualification comparability in the UK, to establish equivalent grades for students with qualifications other than GCSEs. In addition, pupils with qualifications other than GCSEs will need an IELTS score of 4.

Full Boarding applicants are required to attend a suitability for boarding interview.


This School offers a unique opportunity for students to develop into independent adults who can easily adapt to life at university and/or the place of work and develop into leaders of the future.  There are many opportunities to develop leadership skills and to gain independence.

Leadership scholarships are available for Sixth Form applicants. Further details can be found here
