June 2020 Update

Dear all,

I hope this finds you safe and well, with you now having received access to explore and engage with the 5 weeks of transition work that our teachers have provided to support you in your step up from GCSE to A/Applied levels. This preparation will serve you well when you get to your A levels/ Applied courses this September, following what I hope will be a successful bag of GCSE results.


Results day and confirming your place

We now have official confirmation that GCSE results will be released on the planned date of Thursday 20th August 2020.


For our internal students hoping to return to Nishkam Sixth Form, you will be informed by 8.30am on the morning of the 20th whether you have been successful with your application to Nishkam Sixth Form. Following these confirmation emails we will be calling all successful applicants after 9am to confirm their places and course choices and further information regarding the start of Year 12 will be given at this point in time.

In the case that your results do not secure your place at Nishkam, it is important that you keep in contact with your other choices, as they will be following a similar process come results day.


For our external students hoping to join us from other schools, you will need to upload a copy of your results to our Application portal ( These will be quickly checked by our Sixth Form admission team and if you successfully meet the grade requirements to study your chosen courses you will then be called by a member of Senior Leadership to confirm your place and subject choices.


If you have any questions in the meantime, do get in contact with me via

Most key details regarding the Sixth Form can be found on our website and our Facebook page is a constant stream of new information in and around the school. We also have LinkedIn Alumni page  which we encourage all our ex-students to join. You are very much a part of our history and we like to stay in contact with every one of our former students as they forge their own paths, both near and far.


Best wishes

Mr A Ruhe

Assistant Principal and Head of Sixth Form
