Sixth Form - Years 12 & 13

Sixth Form options

From September 2017, all Lower Sixth pupils will select four options. For most this will be three A levels and an additional qualification, but for some it will be four A levels. A levels are all two year linear courses which are then examined at the end of the Upper Sixth. All additional qualifications are completed in the Lower Sixth. In addition to this, pupils will study a Core curriculum, which focuses on developing understanding of and skills for life beyond St John’s.

A levels

The A levels on offer are: art, biology, chemistry, business studies, classical civilisation, design and engineering, drama and theatre, English literature, economics, French, geography, German, government and politics, history, Latin, mathematics (and further mathematics), music, music technology, physical education, physics, psychology, religious studies and Spanish.

Additional qualifications

We offer four additional qualifications: the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), the Engineering Education Scheme (EES), the CISI Award in Fundamentals of Financial Services and a Core Mathematics qualification. Details of these and our Core curriculum are given in our A level options booklet.
