Applying to Backwell Sixth Form is an online process and the deadline for applications is Friday 5 January 2024 at 4.30 pm.
The application form for students who will be new to Backwell School in September 2024 is different to that of students currently studying at Backwell School as we require further information from you. Please ensure that you complete the correct application form.
Students new to Backwell School, please complete the application form here: https://frog.backwellschool.net/sf-app-ext
Students currently studying at Backwell School, please complete the application form here: https://frog.backwellschool.net/sf-app-int . Please ensure that Backwell students complete the application themselves as it links directly to their Frog account.
Please note that applications submitted after the deadline of Friday 5 January 2024 will be considered. However, whilst we will do our best to accommodate your subject choices, those subjects may already be full and there could be reduced choice in terms of subject combinations.
