The Sixth Form Curriculum

“Everything you can be and everything that you are meant to be”

Our aim in the Sixth Form at Blue Coat is to ensure that all our students realise their true potential and experience success. We want them to secure coveted places in the highly competitive world of Higher Education, apprenticeships and employment, but we also them to leave as successful young adults who will be the leaders of the future and make a difference to the communities in which they live.

University offers are based on a candidate’s best three predicted A-Level grades, with a minimum of ABB being required for many of the more competitive courses. We therefore ask students to choose and focus on achieving good grades in 3 A Level subjects.

A Level Subjects on Offer

All students in the Sixth Form follow a 2-year fully linear A Level pathway and are entered for their A Level examinations at the end of Year 13.

With nearly 30 subjects on offer in the Sixth Form we aim to maintain flexibility in the choice of subject combinations which will allow you to move successfully into the next phase of your chosen career.
