Subjects Offered for Sept 2023 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 (Non-GCSE equivalent qualifications will be considered on a case by case basis).
If you have any questions regarding entry requirements or courses please contact the school office via Tel: 01789 268051 or email@example.com
Entry requirements can be found below, and the online application form can be access from the link below. PLEASE NOTE: The online form will go live Wednesday 16th November as applications are not open until then.
Course subject choices are timetabled in block which means that not all course combinations will be available, though many are available due to the way in which we structure the blocks. The block will be advertised here next month. Further Maths A level can be chosen as a fourth subject. If you are unable to get your subjects choices, then speak to a member of the sixth form team or careers who will be able to advise you of alternative subjects.
