At All Saints’ Academy the Sixth Form requires at least five A* - C GCSEs or equivalent Level 2 courses. However, we do consider each applicant on their merits. We will look at your attendance, abilities, gifts, talents and above all your
commitment to do your best alongside your GCSE/BTEC results.
 
Careers Advice
Speak to your Careers department, parents, subject teachers or tutors, especially if you already have an idea of what career you’d like to pursue. You will have the opportunity to discuss your future career plans at your Sixth Form interview. Studying relevant subjects gives you a huge advantage when applying to university or employment opportunities.
 
Challenge
It is important that you enjoy the subjects you choose, but they should also challenge you and get you where you
want to go. Choosing what you are good at is a good place to start but remember, the more academically challenging
A-Level subjects open more doors to future opportunities.
 
Research
Look carefully at the course overview for new subjects our Sixth Form is offering that were not available at GCSE,
for example sociology and psychology. Some students find that they take these courses without looking into them properly first, and are then disappointed when it’s not what they were expecting. Talk to your subject teachers about your strengths and weaknesses to assess your potential, allowing you to make more informed decisions about which A levels you choose.
 
Entry Requirements
 
All A-Levels and BTEC Level 3 courses require C grade in English and or Maths.
 
You will be asked to select four subjects from the option blocks below (no more than one per block).
