Academic Study

All students will have the opportunity to study either A Levels, vocational courses or a combination of both. We have three pathway opportunities open to students. The pathway they can chose will be based on their 'Best 8 score of GCSEs'. If a student has not passed GCSE Maths or English, they will be required to resit this when they join the sixth form.

Pathway One

57 points or above

Students can take 4 A Levels or can take 3 A Levels and also the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification). Students can also access any of the vocational qualifications.

Pathway Two

40 points or above

Students can take 3 A Levels or any of our vocational qualifications. If students have scored between 40 and 43 points we may recommend a combination of A level and Vocational courses.

Pathway Three

36 points or above

Students can access our vocational courses.

For A Levels, we recommend a minimum of a Grade 6 if you have taken a GCSE in that subject. For some subjects, e.g. Chemistry and Physics, a Grade 7 is required. For more details of the requirements needed for each subject, please see the course guide .
