Applications are now open for September 2022.
The online application form is below, together with details about forthcoming open events and how to access a range of information about what's on offer in our sixth form. If you were unable to attend our online open evening on 27th November 2021, you can access some of the material below and you can also take a virtual tour of the school.
We hope that you were able to attend Marling Sixth Form’s Virtual Open Evening on 18th November - and that you found it useful and inspiring. Please do contact us if you still have any specific questions that you were unable to ask. If you were unable to attend, you can view much of the material from the evening below.
If you would like to apply to join our sixth form in September 2022 our preferred application method is the online form, which is available via this link.
This form will save your changes, so if you are unable to complete it in one session, you can return to it at another time and continue from where you left it.
While this is our preferred method of application, if you are unable to apply online, a printable copy of the application form is available below. You will also find information about what you need to choose when completing your application form (What you will study at Marling) and the full 2022 Curriculum Guide.
The address for postal applications is as follows:
Mr Farr, Head of Marling Sixth Form, Marling School Sixth Form, Cainscross Road, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL5 4HE.
Please submit your application by 18th February. Applications received by the deadline are not dealt with on a first come first served basis.
We hope to be able to offer prospective students a chance to find out about A level subjects at an onsite A Level Evening on Thursday 27th January. Booking will be required and places will initially be offered to people who registered for the event in November. Booking will open three weeks before the event. Look out for an email.
On Saturday 12th February, Marling Sixth Form is holding a Discovery Day from 9am - midday. This is a chance for prospective students who are new to Marling School to find out more about what it would be like studying at Marling.
Details about how to book a place will be provided in the new year.
Below you can find the Marling Sixth Form Student Handbook providing details about our current policies and procedures.
The summer work booklet - below - provides additional scholarship tasks to help with transition to A Level work and can also be used to help with super-curricular study throughout the A Level course. It may be useful to read this alongside the Curriculum Guide, which is available further down this page, when considering which A Level subjects to choose.
Some of our Y12 students put together a video showing the sorts of thing they got up to in lockdown. We hope you enjoy watching it and that it gives you a glimpse of the variety of activities our students do, even at such challenging times.
