Sixth Form Curriculum

A Level Subjects

The A Level options available at the Cathedral School can be found in the downloadable booklet below. 

A minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade B or above (including Maths and English) is required to study at here, although it is preferable that students secure an A or A* in subjects chosen at A Level, or related subjects. Of equal importance will be a report from Year 11 indicating a positive attitude to study and school life.

Students should choose subjects in which they are interested, which suit their ability and skills, and which support their aspirations for higher education and career choice.

We offer comprehensive guidance to all students during this process; both to those already at the Cathedral School and to those who hope to enter our sixth form from other schools. There are many opportunities for discussions with teachers, tutors and the careers advisor, Mr Andrew Goss and ISCO. 

We host an Open Evening in the Michaelmas term, where prospective sixth formers can meet teachers and students to discuss their subject choices, and career aspirations with a representative from ISCO.
