How to Apply to Esher Sixth Form College

How to apply to Esher Sixth Form College for entry in 2024?

​All applications to E​sher Sixth Form ​Colle​ge are made online via our OnlineApplications system.

When do I apply?

Applications open online on Tuesday 4 July 2023 and close at midday on Friday 29 September 2023.

When do I find out if I have been offered a place?

If you are a Guaranteed Applicant, you will automatically receive a place once you have submitted your application.

If you are an Open Applicant, you will find out if you have a place on Wednesday 4 October 2023 from 3pm.

Please note that the offer at this stage does not guarantee a place on particular courses.  Study programmes will be finalised at enrolment and will depend on course availability, estimated student demand based on data gathered from admission interviews, and your GCSE final grades.

Am I a Guaranteed Applicant or an Open Applicant?

Guaranteed Applicant

A Guaranteed Applicant is a student who meets one of the following criteria:

  • Resident in postcode areas KT7, KT8 and KT10
  • Students studying at state schools without a sixth form entry in NE Surrey and the London Boroughs of Richmond, Kingston and Merton
  • Siblings of current or previous students

Open Applicant

If you don’t meet the criteria for a Guaranteed Applicant you will be an Open Applicant.

As in previous years, the vast majority of Open applicants will be offered a place.  Once available places have been filled, a number of applicants will be placed on a reserve list and some applications may be unsuccessful. This will all be determined by the outcome of a ballot system.

What are the entry requirements?

The minimum entry requirement is five GCSEs at 9-4, but some courses may require you to get higher grades. It is important to get at least a Grade 4 in English Language and Maths.

Please note that the absence of GCSE English Language at Grade 4 will significantly restrict your study programme options.

What if I missed the deadline?

Applications strictly close at midday 29 September 2023.

In cases where exceptional personal or medical issues exist, extenuating circumstances will be taken into account when considering unsuccessful applications.

Further details are available in the Admission Appeals Procedure.
