Our Curriculum Plan

Key Stage 5 (Years 12-13)

We offer our students a significant amount of support in choosing their post-16 options, and this had led to being able to report excellent NEET figures in recent years. We do believe, however, that the Colton Hills Sixth Form is the right destination for the vast majority of our students, and our curriculum offer is designed to cater for all needs, aptitudes and aspirations. Our offer is a mix of traditional A Level subjects including the ‘facilitating’ subjects necessary for acceptance at strong universities, as well as a relevant suit of vocational courses which build on our Key Stage 4 offer.

As well as the curriculum below, we offer a wider package of careers advice, work experience, enrichment opportunities and higher education contact, as well as a PSHE curriculum and bespoke assembly cycle for post-16 students. We also offer the opportunity for students to re-sit GCSE English and Mathematics qualifications to secure Grade 4 and above.

All subject blocks have five hours of taught curriculum time, as well as 75 minutes per week of independent study time within the school day, and the curriculum plans can be viewed by clicking below:
