Sixth form offers opportunities to either continue subjects you have studied at GCSE or to embark on new ones. Choosing the right subjects in the right combination to ensure your ability to make a strong application to university or other pathway to higher education can be tricky.
Firstly you need to enjoy, feel motivated and be inspired by the subjects you choose in the sixth form. Review the content and the academic skills required for each of the subjects you are considering. You must be interested in the syllabus and feel confident that you have the required academic skills to do well in it. Secondly, your combination of subjects must fit your career aspirations. Review entry requirements for university courses via the UCAS website. Ensure you’re keeping your options open. If the subjects you need to fulfil career aspirations don’t match your strongest academic skills and interests, meaning you’re choosing subjects you find very difficult, consider changing your career aspirations.
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.
