Curriculum

We provide a range of subjects and qualifications, supported by a strong enrichment programme to enable students choose the right path through their final two years at school.  In the Sixth  Form, students learn to take greater ownership of their own learning and development with study periods and independent learning forming a crucial part of their timetable.  Students experience a similar variety of teaching formats to those available at university, and so are well prepared for post 18 education  The courses that the school offers, enhance attainment and achievement by challenging students to develop insight and independence of thought.

Below are videos made by each department articulating each sixth form course and describing in detail:

  • the course and its topics
  • outstanding grades achieved by past students
  • enrichment opportunities
  • post-18 further study and employment

During the Sixth Form, students take core RE which allows them the opportunity to reflect on their world views, through evaluation of current social and global issues.  The purpose of this course is to develop skills in team work, debating, evaluation and analysis and extended writing. Whilst developing these fundamental skills which are key to being successful at A Level, students are also encouraged to evaluate their own morality and ethics by debating how Jesus and the Gospels would tackle issues such as environmentalism and social justice in today's world.  Students may also take General RE - a course exploring moral and ethical values in society giving students 16 UCAS points if successfully completed.  The course also allows students to complete an Extended Project qualification on a philosophical, theological or moral area of study which is the equivalent of half an A Level.

All students take part in the ‘Giving Back’ programme which offers a range of different volunteer opportunities to give service and sacrifice to both the community and school.
