One of the key entry points to The Perse is in the Lower Sixth. In this year group there are 40 to 50 places available for external candidates who will join pupils progressing from Year 11.
We encourage you to visit the School before applying. We hold a dedicated sixth form open evening in November and afternoon tours most weeks during term term, so that you can get a feel for The Perse on a normal working day.
Once you have decided that The Perse Sixth Form is right for your son or daughter, the next step is to apply for a place before the registration deadline (normally in mid November of the year before entry). We will seek a confidential reference from the student’s current school, and invite them into The Perse for their entrance examination and interview.
We have a small number of scholarships available in the Sixth Form to students of exceptional merit. These financial awards are normally worth 5% of the annual school fees.
We offer means-tested financial assistance with fees to those families who could not otherwise afford a Perse education. The level of assistance varies in value from 5% to 100% of annual fees, and is dependent on the financial circumstances of the parents.
