Making the Right Choices

  • In selecting your subjects please remember that you should choose subjects which:
  • You are good at: Every course has its own minimum GCSE grade (please see minimum grade page).
  • You enjoy: Subject enjoyment, interest, involvement and examination success go hand in hand. It is difficult to motivate yourself to do well if you do not enjoy the subjects you are studying.
  • You may need for a certain career or university course: Although certain subjects may be very ‘useful’, anything less than a C grade in even the most useful subject loses its value very rapidly. At the provisional choices stage you are not making any final decisions, and you may change your mind later on.
  • We cannot guarantee to accommodate changes of subject but we will always do our best to help and advise you

Get involved

Prefects / Leadership
All Sixth Form students are invited to apply for the positions of Head Student, Head of House and Prefects. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to develop leadership and other essential skills. Leaders are given significant responsibility within the school and only those with initiative, commitment and creativity need apply!

Q&A with Flynn and Paige

Peer Mentoring:
Sixth Form students have the chance to develop and demonstrate so called soft skills, such as empathy and patience through our peer mentoring programme. This enables Sixth Formers to give something back to the school and have a real impact on the lives of our younger students.

Volunteering Opportunities
In-Class Support - As we are a 11 - 18 school, we are very lucky to have a site that enables Sixth Formers to offer in class support to teachers. Furthermore, we also run a reading support scheme, whereby Sixth Formers help develop the reading skills of Year 7 transition students.

Enrichment and Extra-Curricular
Sixth Formers are role models for the rest of the school. Our focus is on developing well - rounded individuals as well as achieving academic results, so we encourage all our students to take part in a range of activities which helps them grow into confident, independent young adults. We have a volunteering programme that allows all our students to develop the skills required to meet their career needs.

Curriculum Enrichment
As well as taking your subjects, Sixth Formers can opt for the Extended Project Qualification. This is a guided learning qualification that is highly regarded by universities. Students complete a 5000 word project on a topic of their own choice.
