The sixth form curriculum at GSAL offers flexibility and choice, combining a choice of 26 A-level subjects with exciting opportunities including the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and a wide range of enhancement and co-curricular activities.
We recognise that narrowing down the curriculum from 10 GCSE subjects to just three requires some difficult decisions and we want to support our students in making the right subject choices to maximise their chances of success and help them to achieve their goals. To this end, all students choose four A-level subjects which they will study until at least the end of the first term and many will study for the full first year. Students with predictions of AAB or above in the subjects they wish to carry on with may then narrow their curriculum down to three A-levels, if they so choose.
Other students wishing to drop an A-level will have a next-steps interview, where their predicted grades will be considered in light of their future aspirations, and individual decisions will be made to best suit the needs of each student. Predicted grades will be given in December, March and June, which are the points that students can consider personalising their curriculum. From the summer term onwards, many will undertake the EPQ. Decisions around the personalisation of student curriculum choices will always be informed by predicted outcomes and criteria necessary for next-step aspirations, alongside student preferences.
For further information on the subjects available please download our Sixth Form Curriculum Choices 2019 booklet or visit our online course guide.
We have small tutor groups to give individual attention, and our sixth form staff team offer expert guidance on choosing the right university and how to apply. Our specialist Oxbridge coordinator will work with those who aspire to Oxford or Cambridge universities.
