Academic Information

Sixth Form (Ages 16-18)

Providing a broad, challenging and supportive environment for the study of A-Levels, Wellingborough School is ideal for every young person’s success. Choosing A-Level subjects is one of the most important decisions that a student will take and at Wellingborough School we believe in giving tailored support to every young person making this choice. Whether you are joining our Sixth Form from Year 11 or another school you will be given the opportunity to discuss your choices with members of staff who will help you make informed choices.

Our expectation is that students will study three A-Level subjects on entry to the Sixth Form. It is, however, possible for students to take four subjects if they wish to do so, providing they are able to maintain the required standard of work.

In addition, it is expected that students undertake some additional study, often in the form of an Extended Project (EPQ).

Annually we hold a Sixth Form Opening Evening during which time you will be able to speak to Heads of Department and subject teachers about the curriculum offered in the Sixth Form and your personal suitability for those courses.

We aim to have the flexibility to accommodate a wide breadth of subject choices, whilst ensuring that combinations which complement each other are always available for example, Maths, Physics and D & T, or English Literature, History and French.
