Choosing Courses

The details of A Level, vocational and technical courses are available in our prospectus. Although not all possible combinations of subjects can be catered for, we do our best to see that as many combinations of subjects as possible are permitted. We will endeavour to keep you informed of which courses are available throughout the course of the academic year.

We look forward to meeting you to discuss with our teachers the entry requirements for each course and the topics that will be covered. 

Academic A Levels
We will be delivering the 2 year linear courses with external exams only at the end of Year 13.  Please see the individual course descriptions for details.

BTEC National Extended certificate (Level 3): (run by Edexcel examination board)
Courses will be examined through students producing a portfolio of coursework evidence which is assessed by the teaching staff and externally moderated. There will also be externally assessed units.

BTEC National Diploma (Level 3): (run by Edexcel examination board)
The style of these courses is the same as the BTEC National Extended Certificate but is more in-depth.  The BTEC Diploma (sometimes referred to as a double BTEC) allows students to achieve the equivalent of 2 A levels and is taught over a two year period.

English and Mathematics at GCSE:
If the minimum government standard in GCSE English and/or maths has not been achieved, students will automatically follow a timetabled programme of study in the relevant subject, following a discussion relating to their enrolment in the Sixth Form.
