Conditional offers will be sent w/c 25 February 2019 if your predicted grades and test indicate that you are likely to fulfil our admissions criteria for entry into the Sixth Form. We can only accept predicted grades received from our initial request to your school. We cannot reconsider your application or option choice if your grades change during the academic year.
