16-19 Programme of Study

16-19 Programme of Study

How do we meet the requirements of the 16 – 19 study programme?

  • The sixth form program at Sir William Ramsay School consists of Level 3 qualifications (A-Levels, BTECs and Cambridge Nationals) programme of study.  All students study 3 or 4 Level 3 subjects and an Enrichment subject in Year 12.
  • Students who do not hold a grade 4 in Maths or English are allocated lessons on their timetables to retake these subjects.  They can retake either Maths and/or English.
  • Students in our Sixth Form are expected to take part in several activities during morning registration which provides them with the opportunity to develop a range of skills.
  • Mentoring is used effectively to discuss a range of important issues and develop key skills.  This is completed with the Tutor/Head of Sixth Form
  • Every student in Year 12 takes part in our Lecture Series and Year 13 in our Future Pathways sessions once a fortnight.  This provides our students opportunities to cover life skills, the process of applying to universities, apprenticeships, and employment and student finance.
  • We provide opportunities for our students to visit higher education providers.
  • All students receive careers and future planning support
  • Year 12 students actively seek work experience placements with the support of the Sixth Form Team and the Head of Careers. Work experience is conducted throughout Year 12 once a week.
