Post 16 Study Programme
Study Programmes were introduced in August 2013. The purpose of a Study Programme is to provide a personalised curriculum that meets the needs of the individual.
A study Programme has several elements that are all catered for at Edgbarrow Sixth Form.
Qualifications – a balanced programme of qualifications that support students to reach the next stage of their education or allow them to begin a career. At Edgbarrow we offer a range of academic and vocational qualifications. Generally, students are expected to study for the equivalent of 3 A Levels.
- High-Quality Work Experience – purposeful, substantial and supervised placements. A relevant placement should support the students’ studies and broaden their understanding
- Maths and English – Students are required to continue to study Maths and English until they have achieved at least a C grade at GCSE level
- Other Activities may include enrichment programmes, sport, Duke of Edinburgh, pastoral sessions and supervised study
It is important that students recognise that Post-16 education is about more than just the qualifications they achieve and the Edgbarrow Sixth Form team will track and support all elements of a Study Programme.
