For every student, regardless of background or circumstance, to achieve the A Level grades which will open the door to the future of their choice, including access to the most competitive and prestigious universities and professions.

Rationale for the consultation

Didsbury Sixth Form is opening in September 2023 to its first cohort of Year 12 students. The admission arrangements prioritise students who have attended Didsbury High School but we welcome applications from students attending other schools who meet the entry requirements.
