A Levels from September 2017
From September 2017 all A levels offered at TWGSB will be new reformed specifications. These A Levels will follow the new revised format, with all content taught and examined at full A Level standard and with all formal external examinations being at the end of the two year course in Year 13. AS levels will not be available in these subjects.
At the time of writing (September 2016) only two of the 78 specifications due to start first teaching in September 2017 have been accredited by OFQUAL and so final decisions on which specification to follow may not yet have been taken by some departments (RE, Media Studies, Music Technology, Design Technology, Maths and Further Maths).
In Year 12 students will receive a minimum of 9 hours of teaching per subject per fortnight increasing to 10 hours per fortnight in Year 13.
All students are required to study a minimum of 3 A level subjects and for the vast majority this will be the standard academic programme. However, a 4 A level programme would be considered in some cases.
Full details of the Sixth Form curriculum may be found in the Sixth Form Prospctus.
