The Entry to Post 16

At Whitley Academy we offer a range of courses that suit all students. The aim of any Post 16 study is to be successful and therefore we consider carefully what requirements students require to progress onto the different courses available.

To gain entry to Post 16 students are required to have a minimum of 5 GCSE’s, including English and Maths. However, some subjects require specific grade requirements, which may include B grades in certain subjects.

We also expect:

  • Good attitude to learning – at least an average of an 8 (determined by your tutor and Year 11 SLG link)
  • Attendance of at least 96%
  • Punctual to all lessons
  • At least 5 A*-C including English and Maths
  • Meeting of grade requirements for each subject

Should you be applying as an external candidate, a reference will be requested.
