Courses on offer

The following courses are on offer for students joining our Sixth Form in 2018. 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.

As all A level subjects are now reformed, we ask that all students choose three A levels that they will study across a two-year course. Students will not be entered for AS levels although there are end of year examinations to ensure students are making good progress.

In addition, we ask student to choose a final option, such as an Extended Project Qualification, in order to assure breadth as well as depth of study.

To be accepted into Oldfield Sixth Form Centre students must have achieved at least five GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including a grade 4 in both English and Maths. Subject specific entry requirements are detailed in the course descriptions. It is advisable to have achieved grade 6 (B) or above at GCSE level in each subject to be studied at A level. However, we will look at each application on its own merit.

Oldfield Sixth Form Centre has a mixed intake; applications are welcome from male and female students.

Advice on which combination of subjects to choose can be obtained from teaching staff, tutors or from Mr Nash. Students should make sure that they are making an informed personal choice of subjects.

Note: If there is not enough demand for a particular course it may have to be withdrawn from the list of courses on offer.

Informed Choices

Informed Choices is a helpful guide as you consider the best courses and subjects for you to study in the sixth form. The Russell Group of Universities has produced this guide for all young people to give clear information about subjects that they choose to study in the sixth form or at college.
