Courses on Offer

The Sixth form curriculum provides our pupils with the breadth, balance and choice that will ensure that they are successful in their next stages of education or employment.  Pupils are guided down a pathway that ensures their needs are consistently met and that groups of subjects ensure they have the focus required for those next steps.  

Our co-curriculum ensures they have opportunities to participate in activities that ignite passion and enthusiasm, preparing our students for personal fulfilment and active social responsibility. We encourage independent learners who enjoy and value learning throughout their lives. We encourage pupils to enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development; the whole curriculum inspires them to reflect on their place in the wider community, locally, nationally and internationally.

Pupils will also be expected take part in a wealth of extra, CV enriching activities including mentoring younger pupils, leading assemblies and taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
