Year 12 and 13 Subject Information

We recognise that the move from GCSE’s to A-Level study is challenging and we have created a sixth form which makes this transition as easy as possible providing students with both independence and structured support.

Our sixth form offers a vast array of qualifications at all levels providing academic rigor, pastoral support, and guidance to give students the qualifications and personal development needed for success in any chosen field. Students are able to explore the subjects that interest them within a vibrant, friendly, and purposeful learning environment. Our academic programme prepares students for top universities and careers, focussing on providing depth as well as breadth.

For more details on the specific content of subjects offered please Click Here. All students at Whitchurch follow a programme of guidance and support to ensure that they are following an appropriate and individual leaning pathway which matches their aspirations.
