GCSE results usually provide a clear indication of the most suitable pathway for a student to pursue. In order to access our Sixth Form Curriculum, students require a minimum of five GCSEs at grade 5+, including a pass in English Language and Maths. In addition, there are specific entry requirements for some A Level courses that may require a grade 6/7+ in relevant subjects, these requirements can be found on page 6 in the Prospectus below. Each student will be considered on an individual basis, taking into account their application and references in accordance with our admissions policy.
We offer a wide range of both traditional academic A Levels and Level 3 BTEC courses, with both routes providing a clear progression on to university. Upon entry into the Sixth Form, students in Year 12 will receive the following curriculum offer based on their GCSE results:
