Curriculum

Students must have a minimum of six B grades at GCSE to enter the Sixth Form.

In the subjects the student wishes to study, they might need to have achieved a minimum of a A or even A* at GCSE. The Head of Sixth Form will offer guidance.

Should a student wish to take a subject which has not been offered at GCSE, for example Philosophy, they will be required to attain B grades in related subjects.

For a student to continue from AS to A2, we will be expecting them to have attained a Grade C in the AS modules or internal exams taken in the summer of Year 12.

Sixth Formers are required to attend all lessons related to their subjects.

The culture of learning in the Sixth Form is different to that lower down the School. Boys take control of their own studying and are expected to make good use of study periods, working for at least 6 hours per subject, per week, outside lessons. To this end they have been provided with a designated Study Room at School. It is intended that this room will have a climate of quiet and conscientious work.

Subjects available at A Level are listed below.

Art Biology Business Studies (BTec) Chemistry Classical Civilisation Computing
Design Technology Drama Economics English French German
Geography Greek History Latin Maths Further Maths
Music Philosophy Photography Physics Politics Sanskrit
