Key Stage 5
At Key Stage 5, we will offer the A-level Diploma programme. This is a varied programme of study, made up of five elements:
Three or four A-level subjects, chosen from a menu of more than 15 subjects
A wide variety of courses designed to provide breadth and complement the core studies, linking ideas across all disciplines. Some are examined/certificated (e.g. AS courses, DELF/DALF French) and others non-examined (e.g. critical thinking, ancient and modern languages, computing, robotics, psychology)
A project is chosen by the individual and mentored by a member of staff. A variety of outputs possible (e.g. extended essay, short story, presentation, artwork, website, computer program, scientific paper, design, model)
Clubs and activities chosen by the individual and in many cases student-led (e.g. sport, International Duke of Edinburgh Award, outdoor pursuits, community service, entrepreneurship, music, drama, art, technology, science, debating, philosophy, politics, French journalism, poetry)
Personal, social, health, citizenship and economic education; university and careers advice; visiting speakers
In addition, the School will offer a variety of trips and visits, some as part of the curriculum (e.g. field trips, visits to exhibitions and museums) and some optional (e.g. sports tours, ski trips, cultural visits, language exchanges, outdoor adventure, exploration).
