Hello, DS is currently in Year 10 at another public school. Looking at Westminster and Tonbridge for 2020 entry. He will be full-time boarding. Does anyone know how many boys Westminster accepts for sixth form each year? Their website says 70 new girls & boys join sixth form every year, with 1/3 of the entire sixth form student body being girls. Does this mean there are less than 10 new boys who gain entry? Tonbridge, I read, offers around 20 places to new boys for sixth form. Is one more competitive/selective than the other in terms of admission criteria? DS' current school is all boys until sixth form. Thanks! :-)

I think traditionally it was about 10 boy places but a friend’s daughter who has just started days they have taken 90 this year, not 70 and that she thinks there are only 60 girls. Dont Know if this is true though.
