As a basic entry requirement to join our Sixth Form, you must have achieved at least 6 GCSE subjects at Grade 6 or above including:
- at least Grade 5 in English
- at least Grade 5 in Mathematics
- the specific entry requirements for each of your subjects
Most applicants are advised to choose 3 subjects to study at A Level. However, some applicants are welcome to discuss the option of 4 subjects if there are spaces on the courses.
Choosing to study the Extended Project Qualification or Core Mathematics will be an additional course choice. Your study programme will also include timetabled supplementary study sessions and you will be expected to be involved in a Co-curricular activity such as: a volunteering or work experience placement; the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme; music lessons; or a regular sporting commitment.
All A Level courses are linear with examinations at the end of the two year course. Further details are given in the course descriptions.
Please note that if there are insufficient numbers, a course may not run.
Following your application, we confirm with your school that you are on target to meet the entry requirements for the courses you wish to study by requesting a reference. Places will be offered purely on academic criteria. If you are on target to meet the entry requirements, you will be invited to a consultation meeting with a senior teacher in March to talk about your aspirations and allow us to get to know you.
We have a Taster Event in the Summer Term for you to speak to teachers and receive summer tasks to complete in preparation for your courses.
Year 11 Highworth students will meet with their Director of Learning after the PPE examinations to discuss their progress. They will also meet with a Senior Leader in March to discuss their options and future pathways.
Year 11 students applying from other schools can seek additional advice by booking an online meeting slot on Thursday 13 January 8.45-10.30am. Please contact Ms Khalil to book (email@example.com). Please be aware that it is first come, first served and the deadline for booking a slot is Monday 10 January 2022.
Please note that all events are subject to the latest national advice and guidance.
