We have a proud history of successful Sixth Form teaching. The curriculum on offer includes a wide range of traditional 'A' Level and Level 3 BTEC courses, for those preparing for university, apprenticeships or employment, or a Level 2 Pathway for those students who wish to focus on gaining those key skills to prepare them for the world of work or further education. We have the courses to suit you as well as the teachers and state of the art facilities to ensure that you achieve. Students can choose three subjects from a wide choice of A levels and BTECs. Course choices depend on student's prior GCSE attainment. Every student will have a personalised, individual meeting to discuss the best course options for them. We take into account aptitude, interests and the best route to secure successful outcomes that will prepare students for the next stage in their life.
A significant number of our students are invited to attend university Easter and Summer Schools during the holidays which provides them with a valuable university experience. A number of students also participate in yearlong university wider participation schemes such as SOAS Scholars, K+, Goldsmiths, LSE Pathways to Law and Queen Mary Pathways to Coding.
In addition to this the Academy works with a variety of external organisations to provide specialist career and subject guidance including Medicine, Dentistry and Mathematics Summer Schools, Law workshops, Oxbridge conferences, Apprenticeship fairs, Safe Driving guidance and International Gap Year scholarships. Many of the students on these programmes go on to receive places at Russell Group and Top 40 universities.
Extended Project Qualification
The Extended Project Qualification is a qualification highly valued by Russell Group and top third universities. Students are given personalised support to investigate and research a topic they are interested in in greater depth.
The project can be an essay, computer programme, performance or a piece of art. Completing an Extended Project Qualification in addition to your three A levels will add value to your UCAS application and may lower the grade offer from a university. We have a strong record of academic success with Past Extended Project Qualification projects which include:
- An investigation into 'The extent unemployment affects London's economy.
- An investigation into 'The extent the government could have prevented the financial crisis of 2008?'
- An investigation into 'The implications of adopting a global single currency'
- An investigation into 'The ways and the extend social media impacts young people’s mental health'
- A creative writing artefact - A short slave narrative
