    More information about each course is provided in the Senior School Departments pages and in our 2016-18 A Levels: Course Details.

    Many pupils will also take an Extended Project Qualification during their Lower Sixth year. This provides the opportunity to conduct independent research on a topic of particular interest and is a useful qualification for university applications.

    All Sixth Formers participate in sport on one afternoon each week. Our Upper Sixth students also take the 'Preparing for Citizenship' course of lectures and activities.

    Extension Courses

    To widen their interests and experiences, our Sixth Form students take leadership roles in the Combined Cadet Force, are involved in the Community Service Unit or undertake an Extension Course on Thursday afternoons.

    From September 2016, we will be offering the following Extension Courses:

    • Cooking for Life
    • Creative Writing
    • Debating and Model United Nations
    • Digital Media Team


    • Astronomy
    • Business Trading
    • Classics
    • Creative Writing
    • English Language Skills (for those with English as an Additional Language)
    • Ethics and Philosophy
    • Film Appreciation
    • German
    • Latin
    • Political Thought
    • Psychology
    • Robotics and Programming
    • World of Wine

    Courses in italics last for a single period per week; the rest cover two.  Students therefore choose either two single courses or one double one.
