Our Curriculum Offer
A Levels have long been considered to be the ‘Gold Standard’ in education and, for many students, they are the avenue to success in regards to pathways at age 18. We offer linear A Level courses and students are expected to choose at least three subjects. Students wishing to study four A Levels can do so following discussion with the Head of Sixth Form.
General Entrance Criteria
The Warriner Sixth Form is an inclusive Sixth Form with a blend of academic programmes of study. Our entrance criteria are set appropriately to ensure all our students can access three or four programmes of study.
Students must achieve a minimum of Grade 5 in both English and Maths GCSE. Students must then achieve a minimum of Grade 6 in the subjects they wish to study at A level. Further details can be found on the subject specific pages.
Choosing Your Subjects
It is important that you chose subjects which you enjoy and will be successful in. Try to ensure your subjects are combined sensibly and will place you in a strong position for your future university applications or career path. Please ask if you are unsure which subjects to take. We will endeavour to provide students with their first choice of subjects where possible*.
