Sixth Form Curriculum
With a wide range of different subjects to choose from, there is a course for everybody at Phoenix Sixth Form. Whether you wish to study academic subjects, BTECs, vocational courses or a mixture of both, you will find a pathway to suit you.
Pathway A: is for students who enjoy academic study and you will probably want to go on to university. You can choose from science, humanities or arts, or even a combination. In Year 12 you will take three full A Levels through into Year 13. If you are identified as a Most Able learner then there is the opportunity to extend this to four A levels.
Pathway B: this is for students who enjoy academic study but prefer to complete coursework rather than exams. You will study three or four BTEC courses. We have a large range of subjects to choose from some of which can now be studied as a double option so that you can specialise in your chosen pathway. If you meet our entry requirements, you can mix and match Pathway A and B courses.
Pathway C: this is the route for those who need to re-take GCSE English and Maths as well as those who wish to study a vocational subject or GCSE option choice. This route allows you to top up your GCSE levels and gain a Level 2 qualification in Maths and/or English.
It is now compulsory for all pupils who have not achieved a C grade in GCSE Maths and English to continue to study those subjects until they achieve a Level 2 pass. We offer a range of courses such as GCSE re-sit, ESOL and Functional Skills Levels 1 and 2.
