The outcome of St Olave’s SET has been emailed on Tuesday 15th October.


We hold a Sixth Form Open Evening in November for external students interested in joining Year 12 in the following September. Closer to the event, a downloadable timetable is available to download from this page.

The Sixth Form Entrance test is held in the February of the year of entry.

We welcome applications from boys and girls in Year 11 whose sixteenth birthday falls between 1st September and 31st August (inclusive) of the academic year in which the Sixth Form Entrance Test is sat. If their fifteenth birthday falls within this period boys or girls may apply provided they are in year 11 at secondary school and a letter of recommendation is received from their Head Teacher. Entry for these students would be at the discretion of the Governors. Boys and girls may sit the Test once only.  Students in any age range other than those mentioned above will not be allowed to sit the Test. All applicants must have the legal right to be resident in the United Kingdom at the start of and for the duration of their A-Level programme.

Applications must be submitted online no later than the School’s published deadline and must be accompanied by the requested documentation in Sections 1 and 2 (and Section 3 if applicable). Please see Application Procedure menu to the left of this text.

Applicants whose predicted grades meet our minimum GCSE requirements (set out in our Admissions Policy for appropriate year of entry) are invited to sit the Entrance Test at the School. The Test consists of papers in the four subjects applicants wish to study at A-Level and is academically demanding. 458 applications were received for entry in 2019.

Sixth Form offers will be made during March and will be conditional upon meeting the criteria for entry as set out in our Admissions Policy. Successful applicants will be invited to our Congratuations Evening in April.
