Subjects Offered for Sept 2021 Entry
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 grade 4-9 including English and Maths (one non GCSE equivalent qualification will be considered if relevant).
If you have any questions regarding entry requirements or courses please contact the school office via tel: 01789 268051 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Entry requirements can be found below and the online application form can be access from the link below.
