The Sixth Form provides boys and girls with a new working environment, demanding a more mature approach to study. The wide selection of available courses is considered in discussions with parents and teachers, bearing in mind each student's abilities and the opportunities available in Higher Education and future employment.
Year 12 students will select FOUR AS subjects in addition to an Enrichment Activity, although exceptionally able students may be able to choose five AS subjects and no Enrichment Activity.
