Sixth Form Open Evening
The majority of courses on offer are A-levels – two year academic courses where grades are almost entirely based on examination performance at the end of Year 13. We also provide BTEC National courses in Business Studies and Food Science and Nutrition. These courses have an emphasis on coursework with an element of final examination. The two types of courses suit different sorts of learners and form the backbone of different pathways on offer. They are both recognised as ‘Level 3 courses’.
It is important to note that, whilst the entry criteria for access to these courses in Year 12 are outlined in the sixth form prospectus, students will need to meet the necessary standard to pass the end of year assessment in all three courses at the end of Year 12 in order to proceed to Year 13. There will also be an induction test in each subject early in Year 12 to ensure that students are on appropriate courses.
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.
At A-level students can study: Art and Design, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Computer Science, Drama, Economics, English Literature, French, Geography, German, History, Italian, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Music, Photography, Physical Education, Physics, Psychology, Religious Studies and Sociology. All students study General Studies.
We also offer a double or single award A-level in BTEC Business.
