Sixth Form Admissions

The majority of students progress from Oriel’s Year 11 into Sixth Form. However, you don’t need to live in the catchment area or even to have been to Oriel High School to join our popular and supportive Sixth Form and every year we welcome students from other Crawley schools and from further afield.  If you have any questions you would like to find out more about the school, then feel free to speak to Mrs Denman, Head of Sixth Form, and she will be happy to answer any questions you might have.

  • 5 or more grades 4-9; including equivalents across at least 4 subjects
