Sixth Form Curriculum

Students admitted to the Sixth Form will normally take GCE AS level courses in four subjects in the Lower Sixth Form (Year 13). Having completed these courses, most then take three subjects on to further study at GCE A level in the Upper Sixth Form (Year 14). A few students may take all four subjects to A level.

The following courses are currently offered at GCE AS level:

Sixth Form pupils will supplement their AS and A2 courses, from a programme of enrichment options and a wide range of sporting, recreational and extra-curricular activities. Enrichment courses are likely to include ECDL, Critical Thinking, Financial Studies, RSA courses in Word and Text Processing, Irish Language and Culture, Italian and other language taster courses.

All sixth formers have a weekly tutorial class that includes training in study skills and aspects of Careers Education relevant to the needs of students at this level.
