Minimum Academic Standard for Progression into Y13.

  • Entry into Y13 is not automatic in CLF Post 16.
  • The majority of students will continue into Y13 dependent on the entry criteria for courses as outlined below:
  1. For A levels, during formal assessment, Y12 must attain a minimum academic standard of passing all subjects for successful progression in to Y13.
  2. For BTECs all students must attain a minimum vocational standard of passes for successful progression
  3. Supportive statements from subject teachers confirming suitability for continued study at A level.
  4. All students will undertake an enrolment guidance meeting with a Head of Post 16 to guide Y13 choices

Following receipt of AS results or summer mock results, students who have met the entry requirements will be offered a place in Y13.

Students who do not meet the entry requirements into Y13 will be given guidance about a change of study programme and relevant courses available.  They will not be allowed to re-sit the same core learning aims (ie subjects) as they did in Y12.  

In extenuating circumstances we may allow students to go into Y13 without the above criteria. This includes;

  • A significant period of absence due to illness or other extenuating personal circumstances beyond the student’s control within year 12 and 13
  • A student restarted year 12 due to a change in his/her programme of study
  • A student restarted year 12 due to poor performance
