Pathways and Progression

 Sixth Form students in the kitchen

There are two pathways on offer in Year 13.  Each pathway offers courses with real progression routes and proven success. Both offer GCSE Maths and English timetabled re-sits if required, as well as Careers classes, Private Study and Common Room periods in the Sixth Form Centre.

 

One Year Level 2 Pathway GCSE (or equivalent)


14 points from best 5 subjects and at least a Grade E in GCSE Maths and at least a Grade E in GCSE English.


For students with 14 points, one-year courses provide a Level 2 pathway to attaining additional GCSEs and the opportunity to bridge their attainment in Year 12 and provide a year of specialising in two subject areas, to prepare them for our 2 year, Level 3 pathway, or for further education, training, or employment.

The one-year pathway subjects we wish to offer this year include ICT and Travel and Tourism.

Two Year Level 3 Pathway (3 A Levels, or equivalents)


24 points from best 5 subjects - at least Grade E in GCSE Maths AND at least Grade E in GCSE English.


Students select 3 subjects from a range of A Level or A Level equivalent courses, some of which are equivalent to 2 A Levels (Double Award) and follow these courses for 2 years.
