We are pleased to have welcomed more than 100 new students to Y12 this year from schools across the area. We now have over 230 students in Y12, a third of whom are girls.
If you are interested in joining our popular sixth form in September 2022, come to our Open Evening on Thursday 18th November 2021. More details will be published here nearer the time. Applications will then be invited by February 2022.
In the meantime, if you are interested in finding out about what we offer, take a look at last year's Virtual Open Evening that took place on Thursday November 19th 2020. The event was hosted in our own purpose-built virtual environment, created and populated by our sixth form students. While the live Q&A sessions are no longer accessible, you can still watch videos made by teachers and students, take a tour of the school, find out about life in Marling Sixth Form and get advice on choosing your A Level subjects.
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.

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 2021 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.
Our 2021 and 2022 Admissions Policies can be viewed below.
If you were unable to attend our virtual open evening, you can still view much of the material from the event here. You can hear the keynote speech, listen to a talk on choosing A Level subjects, find out about the A Level courses we offer and listen to current students talk about their experience of studying at Marling Sixth Form.
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.
