At KEY STAGE 5 (aged 16-19) we recognise that some of our students are ready to move onto full time college places or apprenticeships. However, we hope that the majority of our students will choose to continue their studies in the Sixth Form once they have completed Year 11.

The school has a strong track record in preparing students for Higher Education and the Key Stage 5 curriculum offers a wide range of courses at Level 3 including traditional A Levels, alongside more vocational courses such as BTEC level 3 courses.  Both A levels and BTEC Level 3 courses are accepted by universities as a means of entry onto a wide range of undergraduate courses. 

Alongside the level 3 qualifications, we support those students who have not yet achieved a grade C (or grade 4 in the new GCSEs) in English and/or Maths to make progress towards achieving these in timetabled lessons with subject specialists. We also offer a level 3 foundation year for students who eventually wish to progress to level 3 courses but need more time and support to ensure the basis of level 2 qualifications they have completed sets them up for success at level 2.

A wider curriculum is also delivered through PCEDs and the tutor time programme to support students to develop their enterprise and work related skills.

“I joined Queen’s Park Sixth Form from another school and I am convinced that the outstanding quality of teaching from the friendly staff is what got me into Oxford University to read Maths.
Thanks for everything Queen’s Park” 

Former student
