We offer A-level pathway or a T-Level pathway

A-levels are two year academic courses where grades are almost entirely based on examination performance at the end of Year 13. 

The T-Level is a two year academic course which includes a 45 day work placement and is assessed via a combination of examination and an employer set project.


  • Most students will embark on a programme of study that includes three A-levels (Pathway 1). These A-levels will be two year courses. It is clear, from our research and experience, that, in most cases, three A-levels is the benchmark that Higher Education institutions and employers value.  Within the Pathway 1 curriculum, there is an option to take Food Science and Nutrition at level 3 diploma with an additional two A-levels.
  • Pathway 2 is designed for students who have an ambition to pursue a T-Level qualification (equivalent to 3 A-levels) in Business Management and Administration that encompasses a real world experience (9 weeks placement) within a rigorous academic framework.
  • To study 4 A-levels (Pathway 3). This will only be recommended for students who achieve extremely high standards at KS4 and where there is a clear rationale for choosing 4 A-levels. (Please speak to a senior member of school staff if you require an explanation of ‘Attainment 8’).

Students at The Broxbourne School also benefit from a General Studies course and an enrichment programme that includes the Extended Project Qualification, extra-curricular activities and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education.

‘The Broxbourne School is an exceptional place to learn’; ‘Sixth form students are excellent role models’; ‘In the sixth form, students follow ambitious courses. This enables very high proportions to progress to the destination of their choice’; ‘Leaders are relentless in their ambition for all pupils to learn what they need to be successful’’; ‘Teachers deliver the curriculum with high levels of skill. They have expert subject knowledge’ (Ofsted)

At A-level, students can study: Art and Design, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computer Science, Drama, Economics, English Literature, English Language, French, Geography, German, History, Italian, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Music, Photography, Physical Education, Physics, Psychology, Religion, Philosophy and Ethics (RPE) and Sociology. There will also be the opportunity to replace one A level choice with a Level 3 diploma in Food Science and Nutrition.
