Admission at 16+ is conditional upon the pupil achieving at least six passes at Grade ‘C’ at GCSE, IGCSE or six grades at ‘2’ at Standard Grade or equivalent. ‘A’/’B’ Grades is normally the minimum requirement to continue the subject at A Level. Pupils whose first language is not English are also required to sit the Loretto Sixth Form Assessment Test. Click on the link Admissions for International pupils for more information.
