Academic Options

Sixth Form students are able to choose from a comprehensive and diverse range of both A Levels and BTEC subjects.

We offer 16 different A Levels and 5 Level 3 BTECs. A Levels include Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, French, Spanish, English Literature, History, Geography, Art, Photography, Economics, Business, Design Technology, and Psychology. Our BTECs include Sport, Hospitality, Health & Social Care, IT, Performing Arts and Music Technology.

Students usually take three subjects and these can be all A Levels, all BTECs or a combination of the two courses.


The BTECS we offer are the equivalent of one A Level and all are well-regarded by universities. They are more focused on work situations and suit some students very well. 

Students may also wish to undertake an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which is equivalent to half an A Level and is highly regarded by universities.

We have had considerable success helping students who wish to pursue courses at the most selective universities or at colleges of Art, Music and Drama.

Please download our latest Sixth Form Brochure below to find out more about the wide range of subject options available; as well as discover what other opportunities we provide our Sixth Form students to develop valuable skills and confidence as they move into adulthood.
