We offer a range of A-level and vocational courses at Y Pant.
In order to maximise our offer in the sixth form, we work together with Bryn Celynnog. This is a long-standing partnership between two schools who continuously achieve excellent results at this level. Pupils are either registered at Bryn Celynnog or Y Pant and then choose from our shared offer of subjects. In some shared subjects, units will be taught at both Y Pant and Bryncelynnog.
A minibus operates between sites so that pupils can get around easily and returns pupils to their base school at the end of the day.
Full details of our courses are given in the prospectus (see the links on this site).
The option columns for sixth form entry in 2018 are outlined below.
All 6th form students are required to study 3 or 4 subjects plus Welsh Baccalaureate. We advise that students only pick 4 subjects if they have already proven, through high GCSE grades, that they can cope with the increased workload, or want to spend the first few weeks of 6th form deciding between subjects. The Welsh Baccalaureate is an important part of the 6th form and also plays a significant role in university applications. This year over 80% of year 13 students have the Welsh Baccalaureate forming part of their university offers.
