Curriculum

Click to download: 2019 RSF Prospectus

Our KS5 curriculum offers students a broad range of A level and vocational BTEC courses, taught by expert staff.  You can choose to study all A level courses, all BTEC courses, or a combination of both.  Most students will start Year 12 with three main subjects, although some students may start with four main subjects. 

A level courses

From September 2018, all our A level courses will be linear, which means that all of the external exams will be taken at the end of a two year course. 

Vocational Level 3 BTEC courses

Vocational courses give students the skills to progress to higher education or employment through more applied learning.  Many students are attracted to these qualifications because of their greater coursework element, although they additionally contain at least one externally assessed component. 

We offer BTEC courses that are equivalent to one A level (the Single Award known as an Extended Certificate) and courses equivalent to two A levels (the Double Award known as a Diploma).  We also offer the Level 3 Cambridge Technical course in IT equivalent to either one or two A levels and an accredited Level 3 Food and Nutrition course.
