Curriculum

Key Stage 5 (aged 16-19)

At Key Stage 5 we recognise that some of our students are ready to move onto full time college places or apprenticeships. However, we hope that the majority of our students will choose to continue their studies in the Sixth Form once they have completed Year 11.

The school has a strong track record in preparing students for Higher Education and the Key Stage 5 curriculum offers a wide range of courses at Level 3 including traditional A Levels, alongside more vocational courses such as BTEC level 3 courses.  Both A levels and BTEC Level 3 courses are accepted by universities as a means of entry onto a wide range of undergraduate courses. 

Alongside the level 3 qualifications, we support  students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 in their GCSEs in English and/or Maths by offering additional lessons in preparation for resits in the following year. We understand the importance of establishing a strong foundation upon which our  level 3 courses are built and for students to maximise on the opportunities open to them beyond KS5 study.

A wider curriculum is also delivered through our PSHE and the tutor time programmes to support students to develop their Personal, Social and Health Education and work related skills.

“I joined Queen’s Park Sixth Form from another school and I am convinced that the outstanding quality of teaching from the friendly staff is what got me into Oxford University to read Maths.
Thanks for everything Queen’s Park”
