SIXTH FORM COURSES
Some students already have a definite career path in mind, others may have a few ideas, whilst some may not yet have decided. Whichever is the case, there is no doubt that Farlington's wide range of Sixth Form courses can help to get you to where you want to go!
We offer a broad curriculum and you may choose from a wide range of A-Level subjects, including all the traditional disciplines alongside more practical-based subjects such as Media, Business, and Drama & Theatre. We are also considering offering a new A-Level, Economics, for September 2022.
A-Level subjects have a linear progression, meaning all external assessments take place at the end of Year 13. Our Year 12 students will sit full examinations at Farlington during the Summer Term, to help inform our internal academic tracking, and to enable us to provide appropriate support through Year 13 and to help with post-Sixth Form applications.
We are delighted to announce that for September 2022 we are considering offering BTEC courses in Sport, Performing Arts, and Travel & Tourism. These vocational courses can be effectively combined with all of the A-Level subjects offered, and both A-Levels and BTECs can be used to accumulate points for UCAS.
BTEC courses are assessed through a mixture of internally set assignments and externally assessed examinations and/or controlled assessments through the two-year course.
