Sixth form curriculum model
Students starting sixth form in September 2016 and completing A-Level courses in summer 2018:
Whilst students have the opportunity to study four subjects in year 12, the majority of students study three full A-level courses with the opportunity to complement their courses with an Extended Project Qualification.
Students who excel in Mathematics may choose to take Further Mathematics at AS-level over two years.
AS-level examinations were sat by students studying ‘legacy’ courses (those yet to be decoupled): Mathematics and Politics.
Students could choose to sit AS-level examinations in other subjects if they felt that doing so would be beneficial to them, or if they intended to drop a 4th subject at the end of year 12.
