HOW TO APPLY
How do I apply for the sixth form?
All of our applications are completed online through https://www.kentprospectus.co.uk/. If you are a Year 11 student from a Kent school, you should be registered for your account by your school in early November. You should receive a letter from your current provider with your login details. If you are from a school that is outside Kent or you are in Year 12, looking to change sixth forms, you will need to self-register and create an account in order to apply. This can be done on the same website. If you would like to speak to us before making an application, please email Mrs Hollinshead on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer your query.
When to apply? What happens after I send my application?
The best time to apply is January-March 2022 of Year 11. We can, of course, deal with enquiries right up to the first week of Year 12 in September, although popular courses may be already over-subscribed, so the earlier you apply, the better for you. If your GCSE results are not as you expected and/or you change your mind about your subject choices, you should still come to see us on results day (or contact us over email) so that we can adjust our offer. Those students currently at Wrotham; your Year 11 team will distribute the Kent Choice logins between term 2 and 3. They will provide some support sessions with your tutors to also advise you and support you through your application process. Once your application is in, interviews will take place (via telephone if appropriate) with a member of the sixth form team. These interviews are informal, because our aim is to explore whether we can meet your needs and answer any questions both you and your parent/s may have. We will include career guidance during this interview to advise you on the best options to choose from. These usually take place between term 3 and term 5. If you are applying from another school, please have in mind your most recent predicted grades from your subjects.
What else do we offer?
- High expectations, challenge and opportunity
- Enrichment programme (this includes sign language, community based projects, fundraising)
- Career guidance throughout the 2 years
- Work experience
- Transform into an independent learner

- Dates and times TBC
These sessions will appear on the Year 11 calendar on teams, these are optional sessions if you would like some support/questions answered. Students from outside of Wrotham School please email Mrs Hollinshead (email@example.com) with a phone number you would like to be contacted on.
How do I apply for the Pro-Soccer Academy?
This is not an academic course in its own right and does not carry a qualification – it is an opportunity to train and play with one of the top training providers in Kent, Pro-Soccer Academy. It involves a time commitment every week (rain or shine!) including weekly fixtures during the majority of the school year. Academic progress must come first – this means that training privileges may be withdrawn for a set time if you fall behind in your studies and need the time to improve.
In order to apply, you will have to have made an academic application to the sixth form to study three courses at Level 3 (equivalent of A level) and will need to contact Pro-Soccer directly in order to arrange a trial. Their contact details can be found on their website http://pro-soccer.co/.
