Our curriculum for Key Stage 5 reflects the broad range of interests and skills of our students. We cater mainly for Level 3 programmes of study but also offer a small range of Level 2 learning for those students who are not yet ready for the demands of Level 3 study. In general, students need to acquire 5 grades of 4 or better, including English and Mathematics in order to progress to Level 3 courses in the Sixth Form.
Students are expected to take a combination of A level and BTEC courses that are equivalent to three level three courses. Our most able students may pursue an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), alongside 3 Level 3 courses. The EPQ is excellent preparation for university study and higher-ranking institutions expect to see top applicants attaining a good EPQ grade.
Subject are grouped into 4 curriculum option blocks comprising up to 6 different subjects.
