Sixth Form Courses

Choosing the right course at sixth form is very important. Obviously, it is very important that you choose a course which is suited to your own individual needs and we are aware that this is not always as easy as it seems.

Step 1

  • What are your predicted GCSE grades?
  • Which subjects do I really enjoy?
  • Where will these subjects lead to?

Step 2

  • Consider your interests (there is a lot to be said for doing something you enjoy)
  • Consider your strengths and weaknesses (how do you learn best, do you perform best in exams or coursework, do you like writing essays?)
  • See individual subject pages for detail on assessment and course content.

Step 3

  • What qualifications do you need for career options?
  • What qualifications do you need for college or university courses?
  • It is vital that you research as thoroughly as possible the entry requirements for your chosen or possible career path.

Step 4

  • The quality of teaching is high. As the result of teachers’ aspirations of what students can achieve, students are independent and resilient learners. Across a variety of subjects, they are encouraged and enabled to use their curiosity as enquiring learners to make strong progress. (Ofsted 2018)
