Sixth Form curriculum and how to apply

As part of the KX3 partnership, an informal partnership with Maria Fidelis Catholic School FCJ and Westminster Kingsway College, our dynamic and innovative curriculum offer is designed to meet the needs, talents and interests of every student. We offer a combination of AS/A Level and vocational courses and provide students with personalised guidance on choosing their subjects that will enable them to achieve their future ambitions.

Read the Regent Sixth Form Curriculum Information booklet to find out more about the courses that will be offered from September 2020.  The closing date for applications is Friday 13 December 2019 at 3.30pm. 

If you are an external applicant, and would like to know more about Regent Sixth Form, please contact Ms Oyedele, Head of Years 12 and 13.  If you would like to apply, you should download an application form to apply for a place and return it to us by Friday 13 December 2019; a later deadline will be considered for external applicants by prior arrangement.
