We are enormously proud of the diversity of interests amongst our students. Students continue their studies at the most prestigious and well-respected institutions in fields such as Art, Music and Languages, as well as a range of STEM and Humanities subjects.
The flexibility and scope of our curriculum offers a unique and bespoke Sixth Form experience with around 30 A Level subjects to choose from. It also allows students to deepen their academic passions in small, focused classes and receive the best possible preparation for Higher Education.
Among our A Level subjects are: Art & Design (Fine Art), Biology, Chemistry, Classical Civilisation, Classical Greek, Computer Science, Design & Technology, Drama & Theatre, Economics, English Literature, French, Geography, German, History, History of Art, Latin, Mandarin, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Music, Philosophy, Physical Education, Physics, Politics, Psychology, Religious Studies and Spanish.
Students who are undecided on their best choice of three A Levels may start four A Levels, then discontinue one subject at a later date.
Enhancement courses and the EPQ are optional but strongly recommended as they will deepen understanding of subject areas and a student’s overall holistic education.
The EPQ offers students the opportunity to complete a piece of extended research which enables them to broaden their studies, or to engage much more deeply with a specific area within an A Level subject. The EPQ qualification is an excellent way to develop independence of thought and scholarship, as well as to demonstrate perseverance and passion. Many universities now make the EPQ part of a more favourable offer to potential students.
Our Enhancement courses in Year 12 provide breadth and encourage the development of interest in subject areas beyond the core A Level programme. Enhancement courses typically include Sports Science, Survival Cookery and the chance to develop knowledge of a modern foreign language.
To ensure that students are fully prepared for public examinations, there are formal examinations in all subjects at appropriate times in Years 12 and 13. Results of these examinations are communicated to parents and discussed in detail with the students in order to ensure that they build on their successes and address any areas for improvement. Public examinations take place in the Summer Term only: results are published in August.
