Curriculum

banner-sixth-curriculum 

Students can choose to study a diverse array of courses including traditional A Level subjects like mathematics, physics, chemistry, history and psychology as well as more specialised subjects like government and politics, economics, theatre studies and classical civilisation as well as the Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate in Sport and Physical Education and Information Technology.

Developing your academic knowledge around the subjects that you really want to study puts intellectual curiosity at the centre of your Sixth Form learning experience.

From the onset you will be taught the skills to enable you to become an independent thinker and researcher. The Sixth Form programme encourages you to take greater responsibility for your own learning, planning the times when you work, making use of study periods and developing your own skill sets and interests to enhance your prospects for applying to university or other career options.

To support you through this, Wolverhampton Grammar School staff offer individual guidance, advice and support to help you make the most of your two years. This personal approach also extends to your curriculum. We will enable you to create your own personal pathway to maximise your academic potential.

In addition to vibrant lessons taught by subject specialists, teaching staff are available to offer further support during lunchtimes and after school. Lessons alone, of course, are not enough to ensure you succeed. As well as access to excellent facilities including the Sixth Form library, you will support your studies outside of the classroom through a combination of homework, revision, reviewing notes or wider reading.

This is where the support and guidance offered by the Sixth Form team will enable you to achieve of your best – when students find work difficult, when the balance between academic and extra-curricular isn’t quite right – whatever the concern, there is always someone at Wolverhampton Grammar School who can help.

Students attending Sixth Form at Wolverhampton Grammar School have the following subject choices. Use the links below to learn more about the departments and the syllabus for each subject or contact our Admissions Registrar to receive a full prospectus and guide to subjects.

In the Lower Sixth students also have the option of undertaking the General Studies AS examinations and, in the Upper Sixth, completing an Extended Project. For those students who opt to undertake General Studies at AS, the Extended Project and complete an Enrichment Diary – the AQA Baccalaureate is a further qualification that can be attained. All of this can help broaden the appeal and maximise the potential for students leaving Wolverhampton Grammar School to gain places on prestigious and highly competitive university courses or be accepted on to work based learning programmes.
