Curriculum

Joining the Sixth Form at Croydon High School means being able to choose from a wide selection of A-level courses.

Opportunities range from traditional academic subjects to much more contemporary choices. Please use the section menu on the left to find more information on the specific courses available.

To enter our Sixth Form, girls must have achieved six GCSE grades at A - B (including Mathematics and English).

Year 12 girls will study three - or in exceptional  cases four - subjects at A Level and it is necessary to have a minimum of B grades in those subjects choices. In some subjects (such as Sciences, Mathematics and Languages), achieving grade A/A* at GCSE will be an advantage.

The AQA Extended Project Qualification

Year 12 girls will be enabled to take the EPQ qualification (Extended Qualification Project) in addition to their GCEs. This not only allows them to develop independent learning skills, to research individual areas of interest and to produce an exciting and individual piece of work that is worth half an A2 level, it is also highly valued by employers and prestigious universities alike, as it enables students to demonstrate interpersonal skills, reflection, independence and originality.

These are important qualities that we encourage within the Sixth Form at Croydon High, and the designated staff work with the girls on a one to one basis, supporting them at every stage of the project and encouraging an attitude of free thinking, creativity and curiosity.

It is clear that choosing to undertake an Extended Project can support your application to Higher Education by:

  • Reducing the level of an offer in one of your main subjects
  • Giving your application preference, on highly selective courses over students who have not undertaken EPQ
  • Providing a focus for valued content within your personal statement
  • Providing a major focus for interview discussion
