Copleston High School

Our application process for 2024 entry has opened.

Applications are processed and all students who have applied to Sixth Form are invited to an interview in February/March. The purpose of the interview is to ensure that each student has chosen a programme which matches their ability, career aspirations and learning styles. 

Once the GCSE results have been released in August, we hold a results service where students who need to or wish to change their programme based on their exam results can do so.

Our course guide and application form are available and can be viewed here on our website, under the "Apply Now" tab on the menu.
