The Core Curriculum
All scholars will study for either:
- 3 A Levels and an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), the content of which can be decided in the Autumn Term; or
- 4 A Levels
The choice of A Levels is a very important decision. As you make the decision, consideration of the following will be useful:
- A level subjects needed for a particular degree course;
- Your interest in a particular subject;
- Ability in and aptitude for a subject; and
- Subjects which complement each other e.g. Economics, Politics & History
It is vital that you think and research carefully before finalising your decisions. As you make the decision, Mercia Collegiate Sixth Form will be on hand to offer any advice you might require. Mercia Collegiate Sixth Form will only offer A Levels. The full subject offer is as follows:
|Further Mathematics||Philosophy, Religion and Ethics (RPE)|
Our Wider Offer
As scholars complete a longer school day at Mercia Collegiate Sixth Form, we will not only offer our Mastery Curriculum tailored to final destinations, we will also continue our enrichment offer.
Scholars will be encouraged to contribute to the wider school community through our Arts programmes, enrichment visits and fieldwork opportunities. Ensuring that scholars are fully immersed in our culture will also ensure they are fully ready to embrace all that university affords them - societies and the wider social side of learning and community.
We will also offer supervised study periods support daily. We expect non-teaching time to be well used and an opportunity to develop independence and wider learning. Staff will be available to support this - so the wider offer ensures scholars are fully in the community of learning.
