Fortismere develops confident and independent learners who support each other and want to make the world a better place. Our holistic sixth form education ensures not only excellent teaching but first rate pastoral support and super curricula enrichment.
This summer, Fortismere Students are celebrating another year of outstanding results at A level. In the first year where students sat the new, more demanding A level examinations in all subjects they have gained impressive outcomes. 1 in 5 students achieved at least 3 A grades. 11% of the grades achieved were A* and 71% of the grades achieved by our students were at least B grade.
Sixth Form Curriculum
From 2019, our students will study three A level subjects from the beginning of Year 12, with some students additionally taking an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) and a few, Further Mathematics, as a fourth A level.
Alternatively, students will select one BTEC Extended Diploma course, which is the equivalent of three A levels.
Alongside their academic courses, all students will participate in an exciting range of weekly enrichment activities. Students will have access to careers and leadership programmes, sports, academic lectures, cultural visits and volunteering opportunities. Such opportunities will support our students in their personal development and widen their horizons.
