One of the key entry points to The Perse is in the Lower Sixth. In this year group there are up to 40 places available for external candidates who will join pupils progressing from Year 11.
We encourage students 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 students and their parents can get a feel for The Perse on a normal working day.
To apply for Sixth Form entry, applicants must complete and submit a registration form before the registration deadline (normally in mid November of Year 11). If you require Tier 4 sponsorship please see here. 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 academic, music, sport, art, drama and general 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.
