Sixth Form subjects

Choosing Your Courses

We offer a range of courses within the Sixth Form, all of which carry UCAS points. This enables you to progress onto a wide variety of post 16 pathways, whether this is university, employment or an apprenticeship.

How to choose your courses

If you are unsure about your post-18 pathway, we encourage you to think about the subjects which you both enjoy and have excelled in. We would also guide you to take subjects which complement each other whilst providing you with the opportunity to acquire a wide range of knowledge and to develop a broad selection of transferable skills. You will be dedicating a large amount of time to each subject so it is important that you choose your courses carefully.
