Kingsmead’s commitment to individual growth extends to every academic stage: our new Sixth Form provides 1:1 bespoke tuition at A Level and BTEC – a level of individual support rarely found elsewhere.
Supporting this academic input is acclaimed pastoral care and an enormous range of co-curricular opportunities; these combine to expand horizons, build confidence and develop independence and leadership.
Most of our Sixth Form students take three academic subjects and the Extended Qualification Project. AS qualifications are available at the end of the Lower Sixth as well as BTEC, an option less focused on examination performance. Distinctions or Merits in a BTEC can provide access to good university courses.
Career advice is provided via group talks and one–to–one consultations, close liaison with parents and additional staff input. Governors and influential alumni facilitate invaluable mock interviews. And Kingsmead has many friends in the wider world: generations of distinguished alumni ensure strong links with industries and the universities and colleges on our doorstep.
