CURRICULUM AND ENRICHMENT OFFER
A full list of Sixth Form courses can be found in the ‘Key Stage 5 Courses’ section of the website. This page gives information about what qualifications and enrichment activities make up a pupil’s timetable.
Year 12 and Year 13 Curriculum
Year 12 pupils study a combination of A level or vocational qualifications as well as personal development and enrichment activities:
· Pupils either choose to study either 3 or 4 A Level or vocational subjects with or without the full extended project qualification (EPQ).
· All pupils complete a mini-project as part of the ‘making the jump – becoming an excellent sixth form learner’ programme.
· All pupils complete a personal development programme (which includes assemblies, educational trips and seminars from external speakers) and enrichment activities.
· All pupils complete a work experience placement at the end of year 12 and a programme of progression days to support their transition to Year 13 and future applications to university, employment or apprenticeships.
In year 13 a pupil’s programme of study is the same as it year 12 but they continue with only three A Level or vocational courses. Year 13 pupils also take part in an extensive programme designed to support them with their application to University and/or a programmes that supports their application to an apprenticeship.
Pastoral Care and Support
Every year 12 has a ‘skills tutor’ to support them with the transition from GCSE to A Level. Every Year 13 pupil has a ‘progression tutor’ to help them secure the university place or apprenticeship they aspire to. The Head of Sixth Form and Head of Year 12, in combination with other members of the Sixth Form Team, provide pupils with the pastoral care and support they need to reach their goals.
Enrichment and Personal Development
Pupils also benefit from taking part in one or more personal development programmes, events and enrichment activities. More information about these can be found in the link below.
