Welcome to the Minster School Sixth Form

2018 Entry (current Year 11)

Study Programme

Most students in our Sixth Form study four subjects in Year 12 and take one AS qualification before continuing three subjects in Year 13. In addition, students also take either the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) or Core Maths and study a programme of statutory Religious Education. The Sports Leadership Award is available as an additional course. Students who need to resit either English or Maths GCSE, will follow a programme of three subjects in Year 12. A small number of students may continue four A Levels into Year 13 where this is appropriate for University Entry Requirements. Further details on the subjects available can be found on the Great Choices page and in our 2018 Prospectus.

Entry Requirements

For our main Pathway 1, students need five or more GCSE grades from 4-9 including English and Maths to enter the Sixth Form. For Pathway 2, students need five or more GCSE grades from 4-9 including English or Maths. Some subjects have minimum grade requirements in order to continue to A Level.

Sixth Form Students receive the support of a specialist Sixth Form tutor and follow a Sixth Form tutorial programme that ensures that students are able to 

successfully adapt to the requirements of AS/A Level study. It also guarantees that students receive accurate and timely information and advice as they make decisions about progression to Higher Education, employment or training. Students can select 

from a wide range of extra curricular activities and other ventures such as Young Enterprise.

Sixth Form students are also involved in a range of enrichment opportunities, including our successful 'Minster Mentors' and subject

 ambassadors programme. This gives opportunities to demonstrate and develop leadership and to take an active role in the school community.
