There is an open choice at A-Level and many students cross the arts/science divide; however the emphasis tends to be on specialisation rather than maintaining breadth and balance. In Year 12, students often choose four subjects to study from a wide range of A-Level courses on offer. Students also have the option to follow a Citizenship course in Year 12 which leads to an AS qualification. In Year 13, students choose three of their subjects to continue with at A-Level. Sixth Form students in addition to these areas of study, may choose to complete an Extended Project as part of the AQA Baccalaureate qualification.
Sixth Formers are involved in the wider life of the Academy by organising clubs, helping in the Community and taking part in Whole School Events. Many students gain a great deal from the extra-curricular activities which provide valuable learning experiences outside A-Level study.
Careers guidance is given before choices are made at both GCSE and A-Level. In all the Key Stages, students are taught across the curriculum in well-equipped specialist rooms. Wherever grouping or setting operates there is regular monitoring to ensure that students follow a programme appropriate to their learning needs.
We expect our students to take full advantage of all the opportunities on offer to them and view their education as an active and participative experience. We expect that as they progress through the Academy they take more responsibility for their own learning and develop independence of thought.
Homework is considered an integral part of the learning experience and is set for all subjects and year groups.
