Application Information

Applications for September 2019 entry are open to both NOA students and external applicants. Forms are now available from Reception / Student Services at the school or online. The deadline for applications is December 21st 2018; applications received after this date will be considered depending on course numbers. Applicants will be invited for an interview at the school after which individual offers will be given. A parent/carer will be expected to accompany their child to the interview. Most courses offered at NOA Sixth Form require students to achieve five grade 4 or above in their GCSEs or equivalent including English and Maths. Students will also need a grade 5 or above (and a grade 5 in English) in a subject to study it at A level. 

Students who do not achieve this may still be offered a place but their choice of courses may be limited. Students who are offered a place but do not achieve a grade 4 in English or Maths GCSE will be required to retake these subjects during year 12 & year 13 if necessary. Students who fail to achieve grade 4 in English and Maths will not be offered a place from September 2019.

Some subjects do have additional entry criteria that students should bear in mind when making their applications. These are listed on the subject pages but are summarized below:
