Sixth Form Prospectus
Sixth Form Courses
Sixth Form courses are at a level of study that is higher than the work undertaken in year 11 and prepare students for entry to university. Students, in most cases pick three subjects, in exceptional circumstances four may be taken. Success in Year 12 is essential for entry into year 13 as is a good record of behaviour and attendance.
The entry requirements for a Sixth Form programme of study is a minimum 4 9-4 grades. You will usually be expected to have a grade 6 in the subjects that you choose and some subjects have specific entry requirements. These will be outlined on Open Evening and in your guidance interviews. Students will also be expected to have a good record of behaviour and attendance. Any student who has not achieved a good pass grade in either GCSE Mathematics or English will need to follow resit programme in these subjects.
A Levels are graded from A – E. Vocational courses are graded Pass, Merit, Distinction and Distinction Star. These grades are assigned points by UCAS and frequently universities will express their offer in terms of points rather than grades. This will all be explained during the course of the two years.
