"Students say teaching is very good as a result of individual tuition and small group sizes."

Admissions and Applications


Our admissions process kick-starts in November, with our Year 11 students receiving information in assembly from our Curriculum Leaders, Careers Adviser, and Head of Sixth Form. Following this, all students from within and outside of Desborough are warmly invited to our Sixth Form Open Evening, taking place this year on Thursday 25th January 2018.

Following our Open Evening, applications can then be made, and interviews to determine course suitability will be conducted.

Any external students wishing to make an application to Desborough College’s Sixth Form, should download and complete an application form from the link below, returning it to the school for the attention of Mr D Clawson, Assistant Principal/Head of Sixth Form. Completed applications can also be returned via email to: sixthformadmin@desborough-college.net

Successful applicants should expect to receive a conditional offer letter before the Easter holidays, outlining clearly the conditions that will need to be met for entry, along with an invitation to a Sixth Form Taster Day, taking place in June.

On GCSE results day, Sixth Form staff will be available in the Sixth Form Centre to adjust offers (where possible), should any entry requirements not be met, or should a student wish to amend their choices.
