Each qualification has a bespoke Curriculum Map that captures the learning journey of students throughout their post-16 studies. This journey builds on knowledge embedded at key stage 4 and is grounded in the principles of recall and retrieval. Students end each unit with a ‘Pit-Stop’ to consolidate, iron out misconceptions and prepare their revision material.
Alongside the key knowledge and skills, each subject has designed an enrichment programme to enhance what students are learning in the classroom. This enrichment programme is designed to increase the cultural capital of students and enable them to pursue their passions beyond the classroom, ensuring that they have the wider subject knowledge to compete for the university, apprenticeship or training of their choice.
All students in our Sixth Form take part in the ATID programme. Founded on the VESPA principles, students are equipped with the tools to vision their future and take the necessary steps to make it happen. This programme incorporates all the strands of the PSHCE and RSE curriculum.
Beginning in Year 12, students are taken through a careers programme that guides them through post-18 pathways. Students meet regularly with our in-house Careers Advisor and are guided through the UCAS process, step by step.
