Years 11, 12 and 13

Find out more about our modern, innovative, flexible learning opportunities here.

There is a wide variety of courses available at Years 11, 12 and 13. SchoolPoint has details of the courses currently available.  All courses of study are subject to student enrolment numbers and staffing availability.  The aim is to provide a course of study at which each student is likely to succeed.

Students must study Religious Education at all levels. They must also study English at Levels One and Two, and Science and Mathematics at Level One. Students then choose their other subjects from the wide variety offered. All courses in the senior school lead to either national or local awards.

To make informed choices, students will need to think carefully, read the information provided on SchoolPoint and go through the following:

Assess your ability in subjects:
Look at results – your individual ability
Discuss this with teachers and parents
Don’t forget the value of hard work!

Think about the importance of interest in the subject:
Do you really enjoy the subject?  Don’t just do what your friends are doing.

Future requirements:
Be careful here and do not narrow your options by dropping critical subjects, especially mathematics, the sciences and some arts subject.

Ask and find out what the subjects are like.
Talk to teachers and students – what is the subject really about and will you enjoy it?

Get help if you are uncertain:
The Careers Counsellor, your CCM Companion, your allocated Dean, the Leader of Learning and teaching staff can all assist.

In summary, option choice is determined by an evaluation of:

Previous year’s study
Necessity for future career flexibility
Ability
Interest and enjoyment of the subject
