KS5

In the 6th Form, the majority of students begin on 3 A Level subjects which they continue throughout the course. A small number of students take 4 subjects as do all students studying Further Maths. We are proud of the very wide range of subjects we offer at KS5, full details of which can be found in the 6th Form area of the website. Students receive 6 x 50-minute periods of teaching per week in each of their A Level subjects.
