External students interviews – we will endeavour to interview new students joining our Sixth Form within three weeks of receiving their application.

Timetable construction – the timetable is constructed from the provisional choices of our students working on a ‘best fit’ model which aims to ensure that as many students as possible get their first choice of course combinations. Where this isn’t possible extra course counselling takes place from March onwards to discuss alternative options.

Further advice:

  • Visit other schools and colleges – make sure this is the right Sixth Form for you by making an informed choice
  • New applicants – join one of our virtual morning tours to find out more about our unique school
  • Speak to siblings, friends, teachers about possible choices – if in doubt, ask!
  • Notify us of any changes to your application or withdrawals
  • Note up to 25% of the Lower Sixth are new to AES and fit into our welcoming and interesting Sixth Form extremely well
  • In September 2021, 42.3% of Year 11 students matriculated to our International Sixth Form.
