Key Stage 5
Our Sixth Form provides A-Level, equivalent Level 3 courses and Level 2 Bridging Courses (new). These qualifications mean that students from Anthony Gell Sixth Form are well equipped for University, employment or Higher Level Apprenticeships.
New for September 2018 Anthony Gell School is offering a range of one-year Level 2 vocational qualifications for students aged 16+. They’re designed with the workplace in mind and provide a high-quality alternative to A-Levels. We believe that choosing these subjects will provide our students with an opportunity to bridge the gap to further study, an apprenticeship or even employment.
We know that careful monitoring of our students is a key factor which contributes to them achieving the best grades. We therefore provide termly progress reports for students/parents as well as two parents’ evenings each year. We also have a Learning Mentor (based in the Sixth Form Study Centre) who works closely with our students to help each student develop the range of skills necessary for Post-16 study.
We believe that students should be fully involved in the life of the school and therefore have an enrichment programme to help broaden the experience of every student in our Sixth Form. Students also have access to our excellent sports facilities, including the fitness suite and the climbing room in the Leisure Centre free of charge. We operate a full PSE programme for all students to ensure they receive continuing advice on health, careers and political awareness.
Students are supported in their choice of options at Key Stage 5 by assembly presentations, open evening and individual interviews with senior staff. The final timetable offered to students is driven by student choices and as such will differ from year to year.
