  • Any requests to make changes to programmes of study after this deadline will only be dealt with on our Sixth Form Enrolment Day

If you have achieved the entry requirement grades for your subject choices and received a confirmation email from your designated member of staff, you are NOT required to attend Enrolment Day on 3rd September.

What if my results are not as expected?

  • If your results are better than expected and you wish to make a change to your programme of study you should email Mrs Fish by noon on Friday 21st August
  • Any requests to make changes to programmes of study after this deadline will only be dealt with on our Sixth Form Enrolment Day
  • If you haven't quite achieved the grades that you need, it is important that you do not worry – there is always a solution and on enrolment day the Sixth Form team will be on hand to help you
  • The offer that you have been made is not final until your GCSE grades have been finalised so there is plenty of time

What do I need to do before Enrolment Day?

  • Calculate your Best 8 score using our points calculator on our Sixth Form pages of the school website
  • Check your score and grades against the entry requirements for the subjects you wish to take
  • It may be useful at this point to take another look at the subjects on offer, especially if you think you either need to make a change or if you have changed your mind
  • Existing Piggott students will have already been contacted by Mr Dusterhoft or   Mrs McNaughton if they have not met the required entry points score
  • External applicants to Piggott Sixth Form will have received a detailed email from Mrs Fish on 5th July outlining procedures that need to be followed on results day and subsequently

If your subject change cannot be resolved by your allocated member of staff, they will make an appointment for you to come into school on 3rd September.  You will be allocated a specific appointment time             


Enrolment Day – ONLY TO BE ATTENDED IF YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT
