Once we have received your application form (and the Reference Request Form if you are an external student), we will write to you for an interview. During your interview, you will be able to discuss your subject preferences and make provisional subject choices. Please ensure you arrive five minutes before your appointment time and report to reception on arrival.

Deadline for Applications for September 2020 entry

The deadline for applications is on Friday 13th December at 4:00pm. Applications received after this date will be placed on a waiting list and allocated interviews and conditional places in date order. Please ensure you send off your application as early as possible so that your interview can be scheduled earlier on in the year.

Conditional offers

All offers will be conditional upon students meeting the entry requirements of the courses they wish to study. They must also meet any additional criteria that we set following their interview, especially those relating to excellent attendance and behaviour.

Sixth Form Induction

Students who receive an offer from Chestnut Grove Academy Sixth Form will be invited to attend an Induction Day in late June. This is compulsory for all prospective students as it will outline the Sixth Form policies, procedures and expectations.


Successful applicants will receive a letter in July inviting them to attend an enrolment appointment in late August or early September, once GCSE results are known.  Students must bring their examination certificates or an official statement of results, proof of their ID (in the form of a passport or birth certificate) and a parent/carer.  If you are unable to make an appointment, for any reason, please contact the Sixth Form Office on 020 8772 2558 to reschedule.  Alternatively, you can email the Sixth Form Office at
