2) At least GCSE Grade C in both English Language and Maths.
3) At least GCSE Grade B in any subject (except Maths) to be studied at A-Level or at International Baccalaureate Higher Level. For Maths, at least GCSE Grade A; for Further Maths, Grade A*. NB: in the case of subjects not available at GCSE, entry requirements to be negotiated (e.g. a B in, say, History or Maths might be required for Economics).
You will also be expected to attend the Sixth Form Induction Course that takes place at the end of June or beginning of July.
Applicants from other schools will be invited to visit the School individually for a discussion of their subject preferences.
Entry to Year 13
Each student’s work is reviewed at the end of Year 12 and progress into Year 13 is dependent on satisfactory performance in the AS examinations.
We are part of the Dover Consortium of schools which means students at DGSB may, timetable compatibility permitting, be able to study part of their programme at another school.
