At Roundhay, our Sixth Form experience aims to inspire you to be the best you can be.
Our curriculum offers high academic challenge within a very supportive environment, where students become independent learners who are responsible, resilient and ready to learn. Beyond the classroom students are encouraged to develop employability skills and be ambitious for their future career.
The Sixth Form curriculum is ambitious for all students. It builds on the knowledge and skills of KS4 and stretches students to prepare them fully for future success.
Students join us from varying starting points and must meet the academic entry requirements of each course as published in our latest prospectus. We offer a broad range of A level courses and level 3 vocational courses.
All students are additionally offered the opportunity to study the Extended Project Qualification and Core Maths. The entry requirements for all courses includes grade 4 in both Maths and English Language, however we run a resit opportunity for students who may wish to improve their grade.
Progression is equally supported by our Enrichment programme and the range of experiences and opportunities provided to develop students’ career choices. This allows students to develop broader skills, including character and confidence that remain a priority at KS5. Through enrichment sessions we explore how to become a successful independent learner, health and well-being, preparation for life in modern Britain and an extensive programme to support progression to university or employment.
As part of the KS5 curriculum, all Sixth Form students take part in our Community Engagement Programme; supporting an activity within the Roundhay community. We offer various activities in school including a Paired Reading Scheme, In-Class Support, Academic Mentoring and opportunities for Sports Leaders, Creative Performing Arts and opportunities at our Primary Campus.
The final aspect of the KS5 curriculum is one week of work experience that is offered to all Y12 students in the summer term of Y12.
