All applicants to the Sixth Form are invited to an interview. This usually lasts around 30 minutes and is also an opportunity to ask any questions about Sixth Form at Derby Grammar School.

Interviews take place all year round, although if you are also applying for a scholarship or bursary the interview must take place before January 31.

Entry is based on the interview and GCSE results. Places are offered conditionally, then confirmed on receipt of final results in August.

Candidates are requested to bring their predicted grades to the interview wherever possible as well as any records or evidence of extra-curricular achievements.

Anybody applying for Sixth Form is welcome to join us for a Taster Day to get a real feel for our School and studying here as a Sixth Former.

We offer an extensive range of over twenty A level courses in various option blocks and we try to accommodate individual subject choices wherever possible.
