Welcome to The Highcrest Academy
The Highcrest Academy Sixth Form is made up from approximately 120 students divided into mixed Year12 and 13 tutor groups. We offer a wide range of Level 2 and 3 courses and the timetable is constructed round the choices made by individual students ensuring all students can study their preferred combination of subjects. The majority of our current Year 11 students are expected to continue into the Sixth Form; however, we do welcome applications for Year 12 from external students.
We pride ourselves on excellent, small group teaching and one-to-one support when required, whilst every student is viewed as an individual with individual needs. A great deal of time and effort is invested to ensure that each student is settled and able to work effectively.
In Year 12 students study either 4 AS subjects, or 2 BTEC courses at either Level 2 or 3. Students may also choose a mixture of BTEC and A level courses to suit their personal needs. We also offer students who wish to improve their GCSE Maths and English grades the opportunity to re-sit these qualifications throughout their time in Sixth Form. In Year 13 students drop one subject so they gain 3 A levels with one AS. Many BTEC Level 3 Business and ICT students’ progress to the 2 year BTEC Level 3 course in Year 13.
