Admissions to Sixth Form

Post-16 education is an exciting prospect – a time to build on GCSE successes and maximise opportunities for the next stage in life. One of the most important decisions is to choose the course of study which best fits individual talents, strengths and needs.

We do all we can to accommodate student choices and with 29 A Level subjects on offer, students have a wide choice. 

Ofsted was high in its praise of our outstanding Sixth Form provision and teaching. Well qualified, expert staff encourage students to enjoy the pursuit of studying at an advanced level. High quality teaching builds confidence and confidence builds success – features which distinguish our sixth form with a high percentage of students achieving Grade A or B and the majority going on to Higher or Further Education.

Students at Highworth are offered a huge variety of courses and for those choosing a pathway to medicine, veterinary science, Oxbridge or a Russell Group university, our success rate is impressive. The depth and challenge of A Level courses provide a perfect grounding for study at a higher level.

The Russell Group (representing 24 leading UK universities) have created an information pack for students which helps them to make informed A Level choices.
