Choosing the right pathway.
One of the keys to success at Sixth Form is choosing the right courses. You need to think about what you have enjoyed in Years 10 and 11 and how you work best as well as your career plans or university choices. Do you enjoy practical or academic subjects? Are you better at examinations or coursework? The chart below acts as a guide to the kinds of courses you might choose but is not prescriptive. We are proud of the number of courses that we are able to offer you and the opportunities this gives you.
We offer a mix of A Levels, BTECH and other Level 3 qualifications with a focus on coursework, plus a number extended BTEC’s in vocational subjects.
Most students taking A Levels will choose three subjects plus an enrichment option such as the extended project qualification or the London Institute of Business and Finance Certificate (LIBF).
We are proud of the work we do to prepare students for their onward destinations. We work in partnership with local universities and colleges as well as our traditional role of preparing students for Russell Group universities.
Last year our students secured places at Imperial College London, Cambridge, Warwick, Birmingham and many more.
Enrichment: Wide Horizons
Sixth Form is more than about examinations. We want our students to leave as well-rounded individuals with a range of skill and interest that will prepare them for life as well as university or employment.
We expect our Sixth Form students to lead by example and act as role models for our younger students by volunteering and taking on leadership of school clubs and activities. Our school enrichment programme extends to over 80 clubs that take place before, during and after school.
We have 8 Leadership posts for 2019 to
