Curriculum

Most Sixth Form pupils choose four A level subjects in the first year, which will lead to AS qualifications at the end at that  year. Three subjects will normally be continued to the full A level (A2) in the second year.

In order to undertake the normal A level course we expect pupils to have obtained a minimum of six grade 6 and two grade 5 subject passes at GCSE with 6/7 the standard minimum requirement in those subjects intended for further study.  GCSE guidelines are available for each A level subject although the final decision about suitability for a particular subject lies with the Director of Studies.

There is no typical Dean Close Sixth Former: each is provided with the opportunities so they can choose the right path for themselves, meaning every journey is different.
