The school provides a diverse academic curriculum, but does not include vocational courses. Students must choose four AS options in the Lower Sixth (Year 12) and most students continue with three (although some students continue with four) of their chosen options to A2 level.
All students are offered the opportunity, alongside AS examinations, to participate in an Academic Enrichment Programme, including the option to engage in the independent study of the AQA Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Students are given advice and guidance about the range of academic enrichment opportunities available. We also encourage Sixth Form students to participate in the wider life of the school by getting involved in the many extra-curricular activities on offer. All Sixth Form students are also be asked to take on some leadership responsibility to help with the supervision of younger pupils.
PE in Sixth Form is available both as a subject to study, and as an extra-curricular activity. Choices in the winter and spring terms include hockey (mixed), rugby, football, netball, badminton and swimming and in the summer tennis, cricket, athletics and rounders.
The Sixth Form Course Guide gives details of all the courses on offer and can be downloaded here.
