Studying with Us/Admissions


Our admissions process to join us in September 2023 is now open!

Our digital prospectus and consortium website are now live and we encourage you to take a look at the huge range of courses we offer for students at Post 16, as well as the pastoral care and enrichment activities offered.

We invite all prospective parents and students to attend our Post 16 information evening on Thursday 3rd November 2022.  Please click here for further information.

If you are a current Year 11 student at TPS, you will fill out an options form via Google classroom before your interview in January. 

If you are an external applicant and wish to apply, please complete the following application form.

At The Priory School Sixth Form, we are part of the Hitchin Schools Consortium which includes Hitchin Girls’ School and Hitchin Boys’ School. This arrangement allows a wider range of subjects and option combinations and therefore presents a Priory sixth former with the very best choices for their future development. Additionally, learning away from your home school encourages collaboration, new friends and the opportunity to broaden your world view by working with a range of different teachers. Full support is given to each student through the respective school pastoral departments to help the settling in process and free transport is laid on to facilitate the movement between school sites.
