How does it work?
The Sixth Form is the start of a new and very special phase of your child’s education. Whether they have opted for the International Baccalaureate Diploma, A Levels or a BTEC, they are now embarking on an educational programme that will prepare them effectively for university and for life. In addition to those important academic qualifications, they will develop valuable skills of self-reliance, stamina and independence.
We are eager that pupils make a flying start to their new courses in September. The Pre-Sixth Form Programme is designed to ensure just that!
During the second half of the Summer Term, each week pupils will follow a special programme of classes. Different subjects will run on different days, with 2 x 55 minutes lessons offered each time.
Geography on Mondays
Economics on Wednesdays
History on Thursdays
There will also be an introductory talk on the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
The programme for pupils will be similar to that for A Levels, but with a different IB subject group each day:
Groups 1 & 2 on alternate Mondays
Group 3 on Tuesdays
Group 4 on Wednesdays
Group 5 on Thursdays
Group 6 on Fridays
There will also be introductory talks on the CAS, Extended Essay and ToK components.
