Subjects Offered for 2018 start

    Stratford upon Avon School has used the opportunity of moving to three A Levels rather than four AS levels to increase the number of teaching hours per subject. Students will now receive eleven teaching hours per subject, per fortnight timetable, instead of the national standard of ten.

    Sixth Form Subjects:

    At Stratford School we have made the commitment to an A level (2 year) course in all subjects. This gives students time to thoroughly assimilate the information and skills they will need to be successful in their final exams; which prepares them well for their next step.

    Students are asked to choose 3 subjects in Year 12 that they will continue for the two years. They are also encouraged to take an enrichment course to support their studies like the Extended Project Qualification that counts as half an A' Level for University entry.

    Our minimum entry requirement is five GCSEs at level 4-9 including English and Maths (one non GCSE equivalent qualification will be considered if relevant).
