All students who are motivated and keen to join the Sixth Form will be offered a place on an appropriate pathway.
If you would like to arrange an opportunity to meet with a member of the Sixth Form team to discuss your options in detail, please be sure to contact us
and we will be happy to arrange this for you.
What are A Levels?
- Advanced level of study with greater depth and challenge
- Available as a familiar or new subject offering progression to wide range of University courses
- All A level courses run for 2 full years.
The A level courses on offer in Sixth Form in September 2024 are listed below:
- English Language
- Philosophy & Ethics
- Sociology (with Criminology)
For many students, a combination of our Technical and A level courses will offer the right balance of examinations and coursework and will provide the perfect stepping stone to University, Higher Level Apprenticeships and future employment.
For example, a students choosing our Combined Pathway might choose A level Sociology, along with an Applied Science and Health & Social Care BTEC course which would set them up very well for future training or careers in Criminology, Forensic Science or other Health Care routes.
Our Combined Pathway will ensure that students leave Sixth Form with a huge array of options and possibilities, and will allow them to enjoy a broad range of content and skills in their lessons.
All places in our Sixth Form will be dependent on students meeting the following criteria and conditions:
- Achieving a sufficiently high progress and attainment score overall and for individual subjects in your final GCSE exams which will be confirmed in August 2024
- Maintaining attendance of 95%+ for the remainder of Year 11 (Role Model or Good on report)
