Studying in the 6th Form
Business and Finance Pathway : Max
‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my Economics, Biology and Chemistry A levels, along with the LIBF Finance qualification. I hope to pursue a degree apprenticeship in the city, with the opportunity to combine serious study with hands on application of learning that this pathway provides. I have appreciated all the advice and guidance about apprenticeships offered in the 6th form, and intend making applications to Ernst and Young, JP Morgan and PWC.’
Science Pathway: Ayla
Choosing Chemistry, Biology and English Literature A levels, Ayla is now focusing on her ambition to secure a place on a Biomedical Sciences degree course, with Warwick and Southampton universities her current favourites. ‘I have been grateful for all the support and advice given regularly in years 12 and 13. I was also fortunate to be able to undertake summer work experience in a PhD lab at King’s College, London.’
Engineering Pathway: Adriel
Deciding on a Double Cambridge Technical Engineering Award, combined with Maths A level, Adriel has been considering university courses linked to these subjects. "I have really enjoyed my 6th form courses, having the opportunity to specialise and study in depth the subjects I really enjoy. My favourite subjects have helped confirm my choice of future career."
International Pathway: Ewan
Staying on from year 11 to study A levels in French, German, English Literature and Drama, Ewan now aims to study Medieval and Modern languages at the University of Cambridge, with an aspiration to work in German theatre. ‘Recent work experience in Rouen, France has further underlined my ambition to continue my study of foreign languages at university. "‘Sixth form learning is very rewarding at our school, with the emphasis on conducting your own research, a very positive classroom atmosphere and inspirational teachers"
Social Sciences Pathway: Oliver
Joining the sixth form from another local school, and choosing to study A levels in Psychology, History, English Combined and Film Studies and an EPQ in Experimental Psychology, I am now applying to London universities including UCL and LSE to study for a Psychology degree. Teaching and learning has proved very fulfilling in the 6th form and the promotion of independent learning also prepares us well for university and our future careers’.
Creative Pathway: Morgan
Choosing to study Drama, English Combined and History at A level, Morgan’s goal is to study Drama at the renowned LIPA – the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed the open and welcoming nature of our 6th form, the inspired teaching and the many opportunities that have enhanced my learning, including participation in theatre trips and school productions.’
