Post-16 Study Programmes

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. Students are required to complete 30 hours work experience during Year 12

  • Maths and English – Students are required to continue to study Maths and English until they have achieved at least a grade 4 at GCSE level

  • Other Activities may include: enrichment programmes, sport, dramatic productions, 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.
