Sixth Form Curriculum
Working together to ensure all students achieve their full potential and are able to pursue their individual goals
Our Sixth Form curriculum is carefully designed to meet the needs of our students. We review the subjects offered each year to ensure breadth of choice for our prospective students. We design our option blocks around student preferences allowing an exceptionally wide range of subject combinations. Our students study either 3 or 4 A-Level courses and our Sixth Form Extra (6FX) programme which enables students to pick up additional qualifications or use the time for wellbeing and leisure, and this is entirely led by the student. Additional qualifications on offer beyond the core A-Level curriculum includes the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), Personal Finance, Spoken English, and the Sports Leadership Award.
Our Sixth Form students also follow our bespoke school programme in Personal, Social & Health Education, Citizenship and Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance, which are tailored to providing our young people with the knowledge and skills they need at this crucial stage in their lives as well as preparing them for their adventures beyond MGGS.
