Higher Secondary

GRADES 11 & 12
The academy’s Sixth Form will provide students who have been successful at IGCSE level (or equivalent). The opportunity to study at +2/Advanced Level. A levels are recognised globally for university admission. The selection of the four subjects for A level study will be based on the following criteria:

  • Does the student NEED to gain a particular subject at A level? (for example Chemistry for a student intending to become a doctor)
  • Will the student be ABLE to cope with the demands of a particular subject at A level?
  • Has the student QUALIFIED to study a particular subject at A level by obtaining at least a B grade in that subject at IGCSE level (or equivalent)?
  • Is the student ENTHUSIASTIC about the subject?

The A level programme is divided into TWO parts. The first year of study leads to assessment at AS level, with the second year adding A2. AS and A2 qualifications together comprise a full A level.

The following subjects will be available for A level study:
English Language
Mathematics
Further Mathematics
Global Perspective and Research
Biology
Chemistry
Physics
Business Studies
Computer Science
Information Technology
Art & Design
Economics
Accountancy

Our aim is to give students their first choice in all four/five subjects through creative timetabling.

Most students will take AS examinations in all 4 subjects at the end of Grade 11. They will then drop one subject and carry 3 through to A2 in Grade 12.

Some students might continue all 4 subjects to full A level (AS + A2). In exceptional cases a student may take more than 4 subjects at A level.

AS grades are awarded at the following grade levels:
a b c d e

Full A level grades (AS + A2) are awarded at the following grade levels:
A* A B C D E

Percentages are provided for results at both AS and A2 level.

The Academy sought accreditation to become an International examinations centre in 2018. One option is the programme run by CIE. Further information about the CIE A Level programme can be found at the following website: www.cie.org.uk

During this time in the Sixth Form, extensive careers support and guidance is provided by academy staff. Each student has an academic mentor – a member of staff who is conversant with the career path the student is interested in. The academy advises both students and parents on university options and offer every assistance with regards to students realising their higher education and/or employment/career objectives.
