Form offers a varied
range of courses.
The Ecclesbourne Sixth Form offers a broad and
balanced curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to
inspire and challenge our Sixth Form students. We
offer a core academic curriculum of A level
qualifica:ons and Applied General Qualifica:ons.
With no pre-‐defined op:on blocks, our curriculum is
designed around the needs of our students with the
arts, three languages, technology and STEM subjects
all available to our students.
Students with a GCSE grade average of 7+ will be
encouraged to ini:ally study four subjects at A level.
This will give them a broad knowledge base to extend
their horizons prior to choosing three subjects in Year
13. Students with a combina:on of GCSE grades will
study three subjects from Year 12.
In addi:on, there is an expecta:on that our Sixth Form
students make a posi:ve contribu:on to our local
community. Students should supplement their
:metable with an enrichment or extra-‐curricular
Progress from Year 12 to Year 13 should not be
considered automa:c. In order to be successful
at A level students need to gain at least three
passes (Grade E) in their summer examina:ons.
