UCAS Applications

Contextual Data 2022 cycle
Wycombe High School is a selective state school with 1,325 on roll including 370 in the Sixth Form.  Of these, 28 joined the school in the Sixth Form achieving the entry requirements of a minimum of 48 points from in their best 8 GCSEs.  The school is a diverse community where 40% of students are of minority ethnic heritage backgrounds.  The catchment area is reasonably prosperous, but there are pockets of serious deprivation.  
In the typical programme, students study for three A Levels while some take four.  In Year 12 students have the opportunity to select an additional enrichment programme or undertake the Level 3 Maths in Context or an Extended Project Qualification if they wish.  Predicted grades are based on ongoing formal internal assessments combined with an examination at the end of Year 12, and teacher’s professional judgment.
All students also complete the WHS CASE, based on the CAS element of the International Baccalaureate and the Enrichment section of the AQA Baccalaureate.  Students must engage in 50 hours of activity in four categories; Creativity, Action, Service and Employability which encompasses a digital course of Enrichment.  They must also undertake a Group Project, which combines at least two of these elements. 
Between 85-90% of Sixth Formers each year move into Higher Education after completing their A Levels.
