Sixth Form Curriculum
Curriculum for 2012/13
The curriculum in the Sixth Form is based around A level subject choices.
Students will take four of the following subjects at AS level in the lower sixth with ten periods per fortnight in each:
|Art & Design||Geography|
|Chemistry||History of Art|
|Drama and Theatre Studies||Religious Studies|
|English Language||Physical Education|
|French||Politics and Government|
In the Upper Sixth they may choose to take three or four of their AS subjects to A-level. In addition all Sixth Form students have a games afternoon (2 periods) each week, an afternoon of Enrichment Activities (2 periods per fortnight) and one period of Lifeskills per fortnight.
For timetabling purposes the teaching classes are placed into groups. All classes within a group are taught concurrently so a student cannot belong to two classes in the same group. For 2012-2013, the subject choices for Sixth Form are:
|Group E||Group F||Group G||Group H|
|Biology||Art, Craft & Design||Art, Craft & Design||Biology|
|English Language||Business Studies||Business Studies||Design & Technology|
|French||Chemistry||Classical Civilisation||English Language|
|Further Maths||Economics||Further Maths set 1a||Geography|
|Latin||History||Government & Politics||Maths|
|Maths||History of Art||Maths||Philosophy|
|Music||Physical Education||Religious Studies||Spanish|
The School's Timetable is over a 2-week cycle. Lessons last 55 minutes with a 5 minute gap between each.
The day consists of:
|11:25-11:50||Assembly (Music rehearsals 11:15-11:50)|
All pupils study an afternoon of enrichment activities every two weeks. Click Here for more information about the Sixth Form Enrichment Programme.
