Apply to Silverdale Sixth Form

We have a growing number of applications, both from within Year 11 at Silverdale and from schools across the Sheffield City Region and north Derbyshire.

When to apply

Applications are welcomed following our Online Open Evening on Thursday 22 October 2020 . You can apply any time from then until the end of January 2021.

Offers are made in order of straight line distance from the school, as determined by the local authority. We advise you to apply as soon as possible.

How to apply

Students at schools that use Sheffield Progress should apply online at:

Students from schools not supported by Sheffield Progress should apply directly to Sheffield Admissions Team using the application form (which is also available below).

Entry requirements

Students who meet the entry criteria of 5 subjects at grades 4 to 9, including English and Maths, and the individual subject entry requirements, as stipulated on our course pages and on the document below, will be offered a place at Silverdale Sixth Form.

Although we encourage all students to apply within this time frame, applications are considered and accepted until September 2021.

Students who are predicted to meet the general minimum requirement of 5 subjects at grade 4 to 9 (plus any subject specific entry requirements) and who attend a school within Chorus Education Trust will get priority over other non-Silverdale/Chorus students.

Other criteria for priority treatment can apply (such as students in care; students facing exceptional circumstances, such as illness) and are detailed in Sheffield City Council’s A Guide for Parents: Transfer to Secondary School guidance. In the event of there being insufficient places for students from other schools the tiebreaker would be straight line distance between home and Silverdale School as stipulated in the Sheffield City Council guidance.

Please note that all courses are subject to change, depending on the number of students who apply and the availability of teaching staff.
