As children begin to look beyond GCSE studies, they are often faced with a bewildering list of A Level and other choices which can make it difficult to choose the best combination of subjects that will serve their longer term ambitions. Our sixth form curriculum is structured to provide clear pathways in the knowledge that it is a time that has a crucial influence on university and career choices over just two short years. Whilst entry to even the best university courses can be achieved with a wide variety of subject combinations, we have selected those which we feel are the best preparation to serve a specific aspiration. We have some flexibility over specific combinations of subject which can be explored in the individual dialogue which will underpin the support we offer to every pupil. If you are unfamiliar with the BTEC qualifications, you would be well advised to find out more. Increasingly they are proving their capacity to enable access to courses at top universities for pupils who would be unable to do so via the A Level route.
