Head Girl - Annie Vayro

Spalding High School welcomes all students into their friendly environment and aims to help guide students to become the best versions of themselves; academically and socially. Spalding High School is proud to celebrate the brilliant examination results achieved annually, but the most important aspect we promote is our ability to help students to grow and develop into independent, ambitious and individual characters, who can then confidently become respectful and active members of society. Especially through our Sixth Form Centre, where the staff, students and facilities help sixth formers become young adults ready for their new journey after Sixth Form. During your time in Sixth Form you have the opportunity to pursue your interests by studying the A Levels of your choice, work productively in silent study rooms (well equipped with computers), alongside the chance to develop friendships and make memories you will cherish forever. The School offers students plenty of opportunity to take part in extra-curricular activities of your choice, to either help aid academic success or to experience something new.


I have been a student at Spalding High School for seven years and have absolutely loved it! I believe the school has enabled me to become an ambitious and determined young adult, ready to face the challenges of life beyond Sixth Form. I have made fabulous memories through the wide range of activities the school encouraged me to take part in. The School has developed my thirst for learning by the captivating and fascinating lessons taught by staff who are experts in their field and the caring nature of the staff helped support me through my time at Spalding High School which has been truly amazing. I am extremely grateful for the seven years of fond memories that I will always look back on with a smile on my face. Due to my experience and the views of other students, I would without any doubt, recommend this sixth form centre to all prospective students.



Having only joined the High at sixth form, I was instantly made to feel welcome.  I’ve made amazing friends, and the support you receive from staff is second to none’.

‘I’ve got so much independence at the High School, but the staff are always there to give guidance and advice.’

‘As a new student, the friendly and welcoming atmosphere has made the transition so much easier.’

‘The staff are really supportive and helpful; you can talk to them about anything.’

‘The opportunity to become part of a committee has helped me to develop many skills including teamwork and organisation.’

‘The opportunity to get involved in extra curricular activities such as Duke of Edinburgh gold, Young Enterprise and World Challenge has been invaluable.’

‘I would recommend Spalding High 6th form to anyone – these past two years have been so fulfilling.’

Oversubscription Criteria

In accordance with the 1996 Education Act the allocation of school places for children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan will take place first.  Remaining places will be allocated in accordance with the policy.

The oversubscription criteria are listed in the order we apply them.  Words marked with a number, for example 1, 2 and 3 are explainded separately in the definition and notes section of our Whole School Admissions Policy available on the School  website.  This policy also has information on appeals, fraudulent or misleading applications, children of UK service personnel and admission of children outside their normal age group.

If there are more applicants than places available then applicants will be offered places in the following order:

*  The child is in the care of the local authority or had previously been in care (1).

*  The grade achieved in the relevant subject or subjects, or for those subjects not available at GCSE, a relevant subject specified in the School's sixth form brochure.  The applicant with the higher grade will have priority.

*  The average points score achieved across all GCSE subjects taken by the applicant.  The applicant with the higher score will have priority.

*  Driving distance (2) from home to school, with the applicant living nearer to the school having priority.  This would be the tie-breaker if necessary; in the event of a tie on distance the school can offer extra place(s).

The Headmistress will consider all applications carefully and reserves the right to apply professional judgement to individual cases where students may fall short of a subject specific entry requirement.
