Each of the following subjects is available as a full A-level over two years: Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Classical Civilisation, Design Technology, Drama and Theatre, Economics, English Literature, French, Geography, German, Government and Politics, History, Latin, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Music, Photography, Physical Education, Physics, Religious Studies, Spanish and Textiles.
All pupils choose four subjects at the start of the Lower Sixth. During the Lent term of the Lower Sixth, each pupil decides his or her final academic programme for the remainder of the Sixth Form. A pupil may opt to drop one subject and continue with three subjects to A-level or to continue with all four subjects.
In the Lower Sixth, most pupils take “Extend and Enlighten”, a course designed by the School to expand awareness of the world beyond the academic subjects that the pupils are studying.
A-level subjects are arranged in option blocks and whilst we naturally attempt to satisfy the desired combination of courses chosen by each individual pupil, we are not able to guarantee that every combination can be made available.
The curriculum is revised regularly; changes are therefore likely from time to time.
