Submission Questions Expected Answers
What is the A*-B rate at  Leventhorpe? The A*-B rate for our students last year was 47.3%.
How many A-levels can I take? The expectation for most students is that they will take three subjects for two years (some BTEC subjects are “double” and count as two of the three choices).  It will be rare for students to take more than three A Level subjects, but there is the possibility to do so.  A range of additional enrichment subjects will be offered in addition to the standard three A levels.
Typically what do I need to get in GCSEs to study the subject of my choice?                   Typically, most students will need a Grade 6 to study a subject of their choice at A level. Information on these can be found on our webpage or in the welcome packs.
Are there any other minimum requirements to access the Sixth Form?

Applicants will need to reach specific grades or levels in order to be able to choose particular subjects and in addition will need to score 40 points or more from their best eight qualifications.

We are a full-time only sixth form and so an applicant has to have the grades to pick three main level three subjects if they are to join us. 

Induction Questions Expected Answers
When is induction this year? Inductions will take place on Thursday 20th June and Friday 21st June 2024.
What does induction consist of? There are two days of induction.  The first gives students a taste of academic lessons and includes our Fresher’s Fair, where students can get a taste for our extra-curricular activities.  The second day is mainly student led and focuses on team-building and our unique student focused ethos. 
Do I have to attend both the induction days? Not at all.  We respect your wishes but do recommend that you try us out.  We are very unique in nature and we love to be able to show this side of our school. You will not be excluded from applying if you don’t arrive.
My family are planning a holiday around this time, does this mean my application will be turned down? All applications will be processed regardless of personal situations.  Again, however, we do recommend that you experience Leventhorpe to make a reasoned choice.
Enrolment Expected Answers
What is enrolment day? Thursday 22nd August 2024. This is when you guarantee your place by coming to Leventhorpe with your actual GCSE results in hand. We assign students to classes on a first-come, first-served basis, as long as they have qualifying entry grades.
Is there any difference for external and internal students? Our internal students pick up their GCSEs and enrol from 09:00, whilst external students collect results from their own schools and then enrol here from 10:30. However, we always have plenty of space for those arriving promptly, do not worry that subjects will be filled with Leventhorpe-only students by 10:30 – it is never the case.
What if I am on holiday for results day? We do not have a cut off for enrolment after this day, and you are welcome to get in touch afterwards, however, it is likely that many subjects will be full by the end of Thursday 22nd August and we urge families to consider this in their holiday planning. The only real way to be guaranteed your courses is to arrive on the day with your results meeting the entry criteria.
