Studying in the sixth form

Our aim is to provide a range of subjects and qualifications, supported by a strong enrichment programme to enable pupils to choose the right path through their final two years at school. That is the thinking behind offering both IB and A level subjects, which build towards either the IB Diploma or a strong set of A level grades.

Both routes not only develop the subject-specific knowledge and skills which are a gateway to undergraduate study, but require organisation and creative thinking that transfer successfully to employment. The enrichment programme balances academic work with engagement in topics drawn from many different disciplines. By the end of the sixth form pupils will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to tackle the academic demands of university study with confidence.

There is a fairly free choice from the following subjects at A level.
 

The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme suits pupils who find the A level subject choice too limiting.

During their time in the sixth form, pupils are encouraged to develop a full and well-rounded academic and co-curricular profile to show that they are much more than just the grades they receive.
