The courses we offer cater for the needs of the vast majority of our students and provide an excellent start to the most competitive university courses. However, being a smaller Sixth Form and coupled with the fact that we know our students very well, we are able to provide individualised options. In certain cases, this can involve running courses for a small number of students whose university ambitions need to be catered for through the study of a certain subject.

This curriculum is complemented by three additional elements:

Religious Education

This programme is very popular and looks at current ethical and philosophical issues. As part of a Catholic Sixth Form, students are encouraged to study and reflect upon these key areas. Both universities and employers are very impressed with the analytical skills that students acquire as part of their studies in this area.

Physical Education

Students are provided with the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities to unwind from their academic studies and keep fit at the same time. Activities include: football, gymnastics, netball, table tennis, aerobics, badminton, rowing, archery and trampolining. All students have free access to the Fitness Suite. Sixth Form students are also given the opportunity to work alongside the staff in the department as PE Leaders. They gain a Gym Instructor?s qualification and manage the new Fitness Suite, completing professional inductions for all new members, and supervise younger students in the facility at lunchtime and after school.

Pastoral Programme

All students take part in the pastoral programme.
