Final option columns for 2021 entry


All courses offered are at a Level 3 and all carry UCAS points which can be used for university applications. Students are advised to check themselves whether particular courses require particular A-level subjects – but we are happy to answer questions.

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.
