Sixth Form Admissions

Our Sixth Form offers mixed tutor groups where Year 12 and 13 students are brought together in a distinct and thriving Sixth Form community. Our Sixth Form suite in Woolverstone Hall is an ideal space for our students to study, relax, have a coffee and (of course) to socialise.

We welcome applications for all year groups in our Sixth Form, depending on availability, we can accept applications and make assessments throughout the academic year for any year group within the Sixth Form. If you are considering the Ipswich High School Sixth Form we encourage you to attend an Open Morning, Sixth Form Open Evening or to book a private tour with our Registrar.

All external pupils wishing to apply to our Sixth Form must complete the Registration Form and appropriate application forms. All current Year 11 Ipswich High School pupils are automatically offered a place in Sixth Form and no further information is needed unless they would like to apply for the Orwell Scholarship.
