Join St. Mary’s Sixth Form (Admission September 2020)

“The idea of moving to a new school was a scary prospect for me, however all the students and staff were very friendly and supportive. After a few days I had already settled in and was ready to focus on my learning.”
— Dan, Year 13 student

If you wish to find out more about joining our Sixth Form please come to our Open Evening which is held each November where you can find out more about the range of courses and opportunities available.  If you wish to visit at another time please contact us at or 01943 883000 option 5 to arrange this.

We welcome students already at St. Mary’s and a significant number join us from other schools.  As a Catholic school our values are important to us and part of all that we do, however a student does not need to be Catholic to join us and many students start with us in the Sixth Form.

The Applications Process

Whilst we accept applications throughout the academic year and on or after GCSE results day, our official deadline is in December.

Apply by completing the application form and send to:

G Priestley

St. Mary's Menston
Bradford Road
West Yorkshire
United Kingdom
LS29 6AE

In order to create a curriculum that is broad and caters for the needs of as many students as possible, we ask students to confirm 3 subject choices and a reserve. A minority of students may choose a fourth subject. This enables us to organise the timetable so that most students can pursue their first choice subjects.

Close to the Easter Holiday we will send out letters to applicants confirming the offer of a place and we would ask that applicants confirm their intention to take up the offer. Following GCSE examinations in the summer term, we invite all students who have been offered a place to attend an induction day where they will experience lessons in their chosen subjects and we will also come together for a social event during the day.

On results day members of the school’s senior team and the sixth form team will meet briefly with our current Year 11 students and make any changes to subject choices. Students new to St. Mary’s should contact the school if they wish to make any changes prior to starting in September.
