Curriculum

Become an independent learner, inspired and support by dedicated teachers in our Sixth Form.

Our students typically select three A Levels from our broad range of options and our academic results are strong across the spectrum, from Humanities and Languages, to the Creative and Performing Arts and STEM subjects.

Our A Level choices

We can accommodate all subject combinations, however focused or diverse your interests. Across our A Level subjects, we instil a love of learning, as well as developing broader HPL skills and attitudes to prepare you for life beyond Sixth Form.

A Level+

You will have plenty of opportunities to extend your learning, beyond A Level studies.

Through our Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) you can explore a topic that interests you, whilst developing key skills that universities and employers value, such as independent thinking and intellectual curiosity.

All students undertake a Philosophy, Ethics and Religion (PER) course, full of debate and discussion on a range of contemporary issues.

Independent study

Independent study at A Level reinforces and consolidates learning. It also plays an important role in being intellectually challenged, by providing an opportunity to delve deeper into a topic and to develop the skills of unsupported study - a vital skill for university study.

When homework is set, our teachers ensure it is engaging and enjoyable. You will be encouraged to develop your own learning outside of school hours and during free lessons. Our supportive teachers are available before and after school, or at morning break and lunchtime, to answer any queries you may have, to ensure you can progress in your studies.

Supporting your studies

We are an inclusive Sixth Form, with a focus on supporting you, whatever your strengths and areas for development. In all cases, your progress will be monitored carefully and communicated clearly and regularly to both you, and your parent(s) or guardian(s).

Our experienced Learning Support department also offers guidance to subject teachers and tutors enabling them to better meet a range of individual needs. During study periods, students can access additional learning support.
