Courses

At S6C, you can follow three advanced level pathways:
1 – Academic Pathway – three/four A levels plus the option to study the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
2 – Mixed Pathway – you can combine BTEC National and CTEC Technical options (single or double A level equivalent) with one or more A levels. EPQ is also an option.
3 – Extended Diploma – we also offer a full time extended diploma in Business and one in Health and Social Care. These courses have been carefully selected because there are excellent progression opportunities within the Health Service and the local business community.
Please note that the list below comprises potential courses available. It does not guarantee that all will run. Numbers opting for subjects, timetabling constraints and local and national developments may result in changes in the curriculum choices we can offer. All students choosing to study at S6C must meet the general entry requirements as well as the specific entry requirements for their chosen subjects (as detailed in the subject descriptions).
Pathway 1 – Students following a purely Academic Curriculum (three/four A levels): you must achieve a minimum of 6 GCSE passes at grade 5 or above including at least a grade 5 in GCSE English Language plus at least a grade 5 in Maths.
Pathway 2 – Students following a mixed pathway: you must achieve a minimum of 5 GCSE passes at grade 4 or above including at least a grade 4 in GCSE English Language plus at least a grade 4 in Maths.
Pathway 3 – For students studying an extended diploma, please see the subject pages for the entry criteria.
