Sixth Form Curriculum

Sixth Form, Years 12 and 13 Subject Information

We offer a range of qualifications and over 25 subjects to choose from. From A Levels to BTECs there is something for every student. Some qualifications are exam based where as others entail coursework assignments or are entirely founded on coursework. This allows students to make a better choices about what they wish to study, based on their strengths and weaknesses.

All subjects have lower than the average class sizes, making teaching highly focused on the individual needs of each student. Due to this there is excellent assessment and tracking to inform progress from tutors and teachers. This involves regular reports on the development and subject progress of students. As a result, individuals often achieve higher than predicted results.

Our Sixth Form team and all teaching staff provide excellent support with studies, higher education and careers advice.
