Sixth Form at QKS: Find Out More

Head of Sixth Form: Miss R Nelson


Subject-based Curriculum

In Years 12 and 13 all students study 3 or sometimes 4  courses (A levels or BTecs) from a wide range of over 23 subjects.

There are 3 different pathways combining A levels or Vocational subjects: A level only, A level and BTecs or exclusively BTec. Each pathway enables students to re-sit GCSE English and Maths if they did not make the required standards.

Find out more about the 23 Level 3 courses delivered through 3 curriculum pathways in our prospectus. With this level of choice and flexibility, there is something to suit everyone.
