Sixth Form Admissions

Joining our Sixth Form

In addition to our own Year 11s, we welcome around 130 students from other schools to our Sixth Form each year. We would strongly encourage you to come and visit us as early as possible. Usually, you would come to an Open Event first and then follow this up with an individual visit on a school day – although we’re happy to arrange for you to do this the other way around.

"Everyone at d'Overbroeck's has an amazing ability to encourage each other to do their best and the environment is brilliant for allowing people to get to where they would like to be or even further."

The application process

Our application process is designed to get to know you as an individual and for you to find out more about being part of the d'Overbroeck's community.

Open Events
Open Events offer you a way to hear about what many of our students and parents say is what makes d’Overbroeck’s special – its environment. They will talk of it having a “friendly, encouraging, unstuffy, family atmosphere” where we are ambitious and celebrate success but want the journey to be as interesting as the destination. We focus on the things that matter and there is a real sense of mutual respect between staff and students- to a degree you won’t find in many other schools.

Individual visits
We would also very much encourage you to join us for an individual visit as this will give you the opportunity to have an in-depth discussion with a senior member of staff and to discuss your desired programme of study in more detail. If you visit us in term term, this is also a fantastic way to gain a true flavour of what day-to-day life here is life.
Registration Form
If you would like to formally apply for a place in the Sixth Form, you'll need to complete our registration form. This is where you tell us about your predicted grades, you’ll give us a recent school report and write a 250 word personal statement about why you are interested in joining d’Overbroeck’s. This is your chance to tell us everything that’s important to you as we’ll refer to your registration form during your interview.
Interview
Once you’ve completed our registration form, we’ll arrange for you and your parents or guardians to come in and have an interview. This is a great chance for us to get to know you better, to discuss your possible subject options at A-Level, and for you to decide if d’Overbroeck’s is the right place for you to study at Sixth Form. Interviews are usual with Alasdair MacPherson our Head of Sixth Form.
