Welcome to City of Norwich School
The main area for Sixth Form learning is the Study Hall, this has been designed to provide Sixth Form students with a university style learning environment. The Learning Centre is available for private study during non-taught time. We expect areas of the Learning Centre to be silent workplaces where students are guaranteed the atmosphere needed for purposeful concentrated study. Other study areas are situated adjacent to the Common Room.
Sixth Form Computer Facilities
You will be able to make use of the Sixth Form computer suite and have access to the school’s PC network that has over 700 workstations. You will have your own password that will allow you to access the internet and use email. Information on Higher and Further Education courses is available on the school’s Gateway. All subject areas have support materials available through the Gateway to assist students’ learning.
The School Day
The school day starts at 8.35am and ends at 4.05pm.
Detailed Information on Courses
Detailed information on the courses is available from the Examination Boards’ websites. If you wish to discuss the speciﬁc content delivered at CNS, please feel free to discuss this at our Open Evenings. All students are expected to pick four AS level subjects to be studied for the duration of Year 12. There is no formal pre-blocking structure at CNS and we endeavour to facilitate students’ combinations of subjects through this ﬂexibility. In this regard, applicants need to start by putting down their preferred combination of subjects. Moving into Year 13, the majority of our students choose to continue three of their four subjects to full A2 level. There is also an option to take up General Studies to help boost University UCAS Point Tariffs. At CNS, we have always been able to run A2 courses if the student demand for the subject continues into Year 13.
CNS Sixth Form is pleased to offer some students the opportunity to study courses independently using the Extended Project and Open University modules in an aspect of Arts, Science, ICT or Technology. These courses encourage independent learning as well as building conﬁdence and have the added bonus of differentiating you from other students when it comes to applying to universities.
