We have an outstanding and popular sixth form, with students joining us from a wide geographical area. Our students usually study four AS level subjects in Year 12 and, three or four A2 subjects in Year 13 for the full A level award.
Our impressive range of subjects attracts high numbers in traditional A levels, as well as specialist areas like Further Maths, German and Economics. We also offer a small number of Vocational Qualifications.
We support our students’ academic progress by a system of target setting and monitoring. We also provide excellent guidance for students, as well as additional mentoring for those making Oxbridge applications or preparing for BMAT and UKCAT (medical) or Law entrance exams. The vast majority progress on to university and a sophisticated guidance system ensures that they are well advised in their decision-making.
We have a strong focus on school leadership and on students taking responsibility for their progress. We also have lots of extra-curricular opportunities that help our students become confident and articulate young adults.
Grades required for courses and options
We offer a wide range of A level courses and four Applied A level courses in three subjects. We also offer Cambridge Pre-U courses, which can be studied alongside A levels and the OCR Extended Project.
