TOP GRADES AND SO MUCH MORE
Join our Sixth Form and you will be supported every step of the way to achieve the best possible grades.
Our track record in the Sixth Form proves that we really do deliver on this, our 2016 results ranked us in the top 2.3% of sixth forms in the country for ‘value added’*. This means, through setting high academic goals, providing demanding teaching and the close monitoring of progression, Claires Court Sixth Form students achieve higher grades than their prior performance would have indicated. In August 2020, our students achieved exceptional grades with 68% of students achieving A* to B grades, and 94% achieving A* to C, and our students go on to a variety of universities around the world to pursue their ambitions.
The government has reformed the delivery of A Levels and moved away from a modular towards a Linear structure. Under this system all exams are undertaken at the end of Year 13 without opportunities to retake.
In order to ensure students have the best possible opportunity to succeed, they will be assessed continually throughout their studies.
Re-sit tuition and examination arrangements exist for those students who do not have higher grade passes in English or Maths GCSE and our Learning Development Department can provide additional 1:1 support alongside our academic mentoring scheme for those with additional learning needs.
There is a full programme of twenty six A Level subjects and one BTEC course:
DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY
