As with our proposed Key Stage 4 Curriculum this must be very provisional at this stage, because
options and courses are currently changing and developing both nationally and locally. We intend to
provide A level and equivalent courses that would enable the majority of our students who wished to
stay on at our school with the options and pathways they will need to go on to university.
We would expect to do this as part of a local post 16 partnership and anticipate that some courses
might be provided by other schools and colleges, just as we might provide specialist courses for
students from other schools.
Our core A level curriculum offer would be likely to include: Art; Biology; Business Studies (or
Economics); Chemistry; Drama; Dance; English Literature; French; Geography; Greek, History; Latin;
Mathematics; Media Studies; Music; Physical Education; Physics; Psychology; Product Design;
Religious Education; Spanish.
Non A-level routes will be decided according to the needs and aspirations of the individual and to
integrate with the developing pattern of local post 16 provision.
For some students, who are not immediately ready for Level 3 further education, we will offer
appropriate pathways to enable them to progress to level 3 courses in our Sixth Form or to other
