When you have taken your IGCSEs, you will be ready to enter a UK Sixth Form to study A-Levels or the IB. What’s more, you will have strong English language skills — not just in speaking, but in reading, writing and listening. You will also have experience of British culture. Schools like to take our students because they know that they are well prepared and able to be successful.

During your time at d’Overbroeck’s, you will meet many of our A-Level teachers and get to know our A-Level students so the Sixth Form will be familiar to you.

Many of our International School students want to continue with us and study their A-Levels at the Sixth Form. The Head of the International School and Registrar help with this process, arranging interviews and tests, as well as providing references and a track record of your attendance and academic progress.

Students have the opportunity to attend an Open Day and we arrange ‘taster’ lessons in subjects that interest you. We’ll also help you to decide what subjects to study at A-Level.

Acceptance onto the d’Overbroeck’s A-Level course depends on meeting these entrance requirements:

  • 6 IGCSE passes, including English and Maths
  • At least a grade 6 in any subject you wish to take at A-Level (grade 7 or above for Mathematics)


However, if you want to study IB rather than A-Level or you would like a change of location, we can help you to progress on to another top school in the UK. We have excellent contacts with other UK schools and will:

  • Arrange visits and interviews
  • Organise and invigilate tests on behalf of other schools
  • Provide reports and references
  • Prepare you for interviews
