Entry Requirements

Our curriculum offers something for everyone, educates the whole person and provides academic excellence in a studious and forward-looking community.  We offer a wide range of both traditional academic A Levels and Level 3 BTEC courses, with both routes providing a clear progression on to university. Upon entry into the Sixth Form, students in Year 12 will receive the following curriculum offer based on their GCSE results:


The subjects we offer enable students to progress to any university course, prepare them for life in a globally mobile society and meet the technological challenges of a rapidly changing world.

All 16 to 19 students, whether studying academic, applied or technical qualifications, should be given the opportunity to take a study programme which reflects their prior attainment, education and career goals.

Academic Expectations

Study programmes should normally include substantial academic or applied and technical qualifications; non-qualification activity including work experience; and extracurricular activities.

New accountability measures were introduced from 2016.

Our students are expected to make good progress towards their targets in all subjects studied. Our students are expected to meet the business wear dress code and retain 95% or above attendance.

Study programmes should be focused on progression to the next level of education, a traineeship or apprenticeship, or other employment.

Funding is on a per student, not per qualification basis.
