Sixth Form Admissions

We are delighted that you are considering our Sixth Form at Gordon's School. We encourage both internal and external applications for Sixth Form. Please do not be put off from applying for a day boarding place due to distance.

We  encourage families to visit us and we run an Open Evening each October, followed by a series of Open Mornings that are most useful for external applicants to find out more about us. For families based abroad and looking for Residential Boarding you may attend one of our Sixth Form Open Mornings if you are in the UK, otherwise please call the School to arrange an individual visit.
