"To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there."

OUR CURRICULUM OFFER
The Sixth Form curriculum is designed to maximise your potential. We offer a wide range of courses that provide students with the opportunity to reach their desired destination. Through our Sixth Form curriculum we will ensure each student progresses to further education or gaining a place on a meaningful career path.
A Level and BTEC Level 3 courses.
The majority of pupils are advised and encouraged to choose four subjects at the start of Lower Sixth Form (Year 12). The subjects that students can choose are dependent on if they have met the entry requirements for each subject.
A BTEC Level 3 course and A Level are equal in terms of the amount of UCAS points they offer.
In addition to their studies, we offer a range of additional courses that students can complete. These courses are designed to support students’ progression into higher education and the place of work. This offer includes the Extended Project Qualification, Lamda, Music and COPE. These courses also offer additional UCAS points. (Please refer to subject pages in Sixth Form course booklet for more information)
Extended Qualifications on Offer:
- EPQ (Extended project qualification)
- COPE (The Certificate of Personal Effectiveness)
- LAMDA (London Academy Of Music & Dramatic Art)
- AMRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music)
The Vocational Hub is a bespoke programme ensuring those students who do not obtain a Level 4 or above in GCSE English and Maths are given the opportunity to progress towards achieving this whilst gaining additional Level Two and Level Three recognised qualifications that are linked to progression routes into university, apprenticeships and employment.
In preparation for their chosen pathways, students will be expected to enhance their personal skills by undertaking work experience, voluntary work and taking an active role in enterprise projects to help raise money for charities in the local area. Moreover, students will be given the opportunity to further develop their personal skills by attending and taking part in presentations, workshops and events organised by a range of industry experts. To further reinforce the tailored nature of the programme, an individualised intervention plan will provide students with the prospect of receiving regular mentoring sessions from an experienced member of the Sixth Form team or an industry expert to ensure every step has been evaluated and sufficiently considered to actualise their chosen career pathway.
