Applying for a VI Form place at CSMS

Biol lab workTo join Cornwall School of Maths and Science for your STEM A-Levels you first must apply to The VI Form Academy. More details about this process can be found on the main CSIA website, here. At your VI Form interview you will be asked if you are interested in studying at CSMS. All students who indicate that they may be interested will be sent a CSMS application form.

Students at CSMS will study Maths and one or more Sciences on the Nexus Campus, and will study their other subjects on the Main VI Form Academy Campus.

While the CSMS programme is extensive, unique and exceptional is it also academically demanding. We base a large part of our decision about whether to offer a place on whether we feel that the applicant will be able to maintain an exceptional standard in their A Levels while meeting the additional demands of the programme at CSMS. An offer of a place at CSMS will be conditional on at least 5 8/9 or A and A* grades in five GCSE subjects, including those to be studied at A-Level.

If you wish to join the Oxbridge Stream at CSMS there will be an additional process which will include an interview.

We are now accepting applications for the VI Form Academy and CSMS for September 2019 entry.
