Entry requirements

In order to study four Level 3 qualifications in year 12, we expect students to have achieved a minimum of five grade 5 qualifications at GCSE in subjects relevant to their choices at sixth form.

Prospective students should also be aware that course-specific entry criteria may apply – please see our prospectus or curriculum guide for details.

Application process


Applications should be made via our digital form which can be found here.

A note on our Academy Partnership

Teachers at HSFC come from from both The National Church of England and The Holgate Academy, as a result a data sharing agreement exists between these schools to ensure both an educational and a health and safety needs of all students are met.
