The typical offer for Post 16 students are three full A Level (or equivalent) courses taught over 9 periods per fortnight, with additional independent study allocated.
Formal examinations will take place at the end of Year 13 for most students, with internal assessments throughout Sixth Form. Parents/Carers are informed of progress with three Grade Updates and an invitation to two parents evenings per year.
