A Level

Sixth Form pupils are prepared for university entrance.

The School offers a range of A level courses. Pupils are required to have gained at least a Grade 7 (or equivalent) in GCSE in each of their chosen subjects before embarking on the AS Level course and typically require a minimum of 6 GCSEs at grade 7 or above.

Most pupils in L6 study 4 subjects; the number is sometimes reduced in Upper Sixth.

Pupils choose from Art, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Studies (AS only), Economics, English Literature, French, Further Mathematics, Geography, History, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Politics and Spanish.

An enrichment programme takes place each week, where pupils can enjoy non-examination subjects.
