The curriculum offer for the Sixth Form ensures that students have a wide range of options. Most students study three Linear A levels subjects with terminal exams in Year 13.

We offer the following A level subjects: English Literature, English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Mathematics with Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, Religious Studies, French, German, Spanish, Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Art, Music, Drama, Product Design, Textiles, and Film Studies.

This range of subjects enables students to study subjects which are new to them in Key Stage 5, as well as to develop interests they already have. To study in the Sixth Form, students need to attain five GCSE grades at level 9-5, including English Language and Mathematics. In addition, there are particular GCSE grade requirements for most A Level subjects.

In addition we offer the Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which complements the standard offer of three A levels. This qualification is well regarded by universities and allows students to develop the skills required when studying at undergraduate level; such as independence, research skills, academic writing, presentation skills, project management skills, data analysis and problem solving.
