Information for UCAS applicants
The Cherwell School is a non-selective, mixed comprehensive school of 2008 students based close to the centre of Oxford.
There are 621 students in the Sixth Form, who originate from both Cherwell School and a variety of other state schools across the county (a small number of students also join us who have previously been educated in the independent sector).
All students in the sixth form study A levels, we do not offer any vocational courses, GCSE retakes or AS levels other than AS maths and the EPQ. Most students will study 3 A levels and the Extended Project Qualification (which is compulsory), with some taking Further Maths as an additional subject. A small proportion of students also choose to take a 4th A level.
Class sizes typically range from 18-25 and both prior attainment and A level results are above national average.
The students are from a range of socio-economic backgrounds and approximately 7% of students are in receipt of the 16-19 bursary.
