Pupils entering the Sixth Form and wishing to study a subject to AS or A2 levels should have attained at least a grade C at GCSE level in that subject. Occasionally some students are admitted onto A level courses with inferior grades if there are satisfactory reasons for this. Overseas students should have a similar qualification.
Any pupils not gaining five GCSE passes at grade C or above must continue with the necessary number of GCSE courses until they have achieved five passes. All pupils must continue with courses in English and Mathematics until at least grade C standard has been achieved. Overseas students may follow a GCSE English course or one of those offered by the EAL Department (KET, PET or IELTS courses)
Pupils are free to select any of the subjects they are studying at present including the 3 separate sciences. In addition, we can offer courses in Accounting, Psychology and Environmental Science.
The school now offers BTec courses in Music, ICT and Business which are totally coursework based and involve no written examinations.
Please visit the specific subject pages for more information about the courses on offer.
