Curriculum

Key Stage 5 - A Levels

ADVANCED LEVEL GCE

Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School offers post 16 courses exclusively at A Level.

All students will be required to study three subjects at A Level. 

The only exception to this will be:

  • ​ students who opt for further mathematics as they will study two A levels alongside A levels in maths and further maths
  • ​​ students who have a number of high GCSE grades (A*). Such students should indicate their wish to be considered on their application form. A place on a 4th A Level course will only be offered if a student’s school reference suggests that they will achieve highly at GCSE and their place on the 4th  A Level will only be confirmed once GCSE results are known.

There will no longer be an option for students to discontinue a subject at the end of year 12 having completed the AS portion of their course. All students entering Year 13 must study 3 A Levels. 

Further information on subjects offered at GCE A Level can be found in the  Sixth Form Prospectus ​

Students who do best in our Sixth Form are prepared to read and research beyond the taught curriculum. They are curious and want to learn more for themselves.
