You can apply to Carterton Community College Sixth Form in a number of different ways.

When applying to Carterton Community College Sixth Form there are two main criteria you need to consider:

  1. You must meet the course criteria for the subjects you are wishing to study. These can be found on the individual subject pages.
  2. Your GCSE / BTEC qualifications results must equate to 320 Carterton Points. To work out your predicted Carterton Points use the table below and add up your predicted top eight subjects.

Collect a hard copy from either from the Sixth Form Centre or main school reception complete and return to Mrs Mustoe in the Admin Block

If on GCSE results day you fail to achieve either the magic 320 Carterton Points or the subject requirements we will discuss this with you and if necessary arrange another meeting in August to discuss the options that are available to you.
