All 16 to 19 study programmes should be designed to provide students with a structured and challenging learning programme that supports their personal and academic development and progression so that students leave us ready to go out into the next exciting stage of their lives. Study programmes should be individually tailored but will typically combine the elements below:
To meet the 16-19 Programme of Study, all students are expected to study a minimum of 3 A levels or other Level 3 qualifications. Study programmes are designed to be full-time with a minimum of 540 planned hours per academic year. Please see below for the allocation of those planned academic hours.
|Planned Hours: |
|A level 1||156||Core aim|
|A level 2||156|
|A level 3||156|
|Financial Studies or EPQ||117|
|Preparation for HE||19.5|
*Please note we were unable to offer work experience in the traditional manner for the academic year 2020-2021. All students were offered the opportunity to complete virtual work experience or support with the delivery of the school’s Summer School which provided 30 hours of work experience and a Leadership Qualification. We are optimistic that work experience should resume for the Academic Year 2021-2022.
