Curriculum & Courses

The curriculum in the Sixth Form is one that provides:

  1. Academic success
  2. Stimulation and challenge
  3. Choice and diversity
  4. Progression onto a range of post Sixth Form options
  5. Access for all who meet the entry requirements
  6. Encouragement for independent and life-long learning

The size of the Sixth Form means our curriculum offer at post 16 is second to none. We offer 34 Level 3 courses. We recommend students study three courses (with an exception of the most able students and students taking Further Mathematics who often take four). Alongside these courses, we offer a range of enrichment courses including Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which is highly regarding by universities, Level 3 mathematical studies along with non-qualification timetabled and non-timetabled enrichment opportunities.

For curriculum information on all of our KS5 subjects, including what students will learn in year 12 and 13, please read the Sixth Form Subject Prospectus here:
