Courses on offer

The following courses are on offer for students joining our Sixth Form in 2023. Please look closely at the course descriptions as they will give you details about examination boards, course content and how the subjects will be assessed.

We ask that all students choose three A levels that they will study across a two-year course.

The Oldfield Offer

All students should select one of the options from the Oldfield Offer below:

The Extended Project Qualification – an independent research-focused project on a subject the student chooses. The EPQ is highly regarded by universities and is worth 28 UCAS points (half an A level).
Further Maths – students must be studying Mathematics A level to take this option and have achieved a grade 8–9 at GCSE.  An ideal option for mathematicians considering studying the subject at University.  This provides students with a full A level qualification.
Core Maths – ideal for students not taking Mathematics A level but who recognise the importance of continuing to study the subject.  Core Maths supports many subjects, from the Sciences to Geography, which have a large element of mathematics in their curriculum.  A grade A is worth 20 UCAS points.
Sports Leadership – ideal for students who are interested in sports coaching, leadership or teaching in the future. The course includes 30 hours of leadership experience and is worth 16 UCAS points.
