Entry into the Sixth Form

Welcome to Benton Park Sixth Form. Based near Leeds City Centre, we offer a wide range of A-Level and BTEC qualifications for school leavers.

Access to Sixth Form is based on prior academic achievement, behaviour and attendance records. Students must attain at least 5 GCSE passes at grade 4 or above.  Some subjects may have specific criteria which will be highlighted on their documentation.

“Sixth-form students praised the school highly for the academic and pastoral support they are provided with.” Ofsted 2018

All prospective students are invited to take part in our guidance process, where you will meet with a member of Benton Park staff.  This meeting helps you to understand what is involved in each of your potential course options and helps you to ensure that that your course choices will support you in your future career and higher education ambitions.

“Sixth form students are confident that they will achieve their goals and are very pleased to be at Benton Park sixth form.” Ofsted 2018
