All existing and new pupils are given the opportunity to study for further academic and vocational qualifications with us at Key Stage 5. 

We have excellent links with Doncaster Specialist Communication College which shares our campus and allows pupils greater flexibility with their options.

Sixth form students are aged 16-19 and will all study Maths, English and ICT courses. Additional programmes will be discussed and tailored around personal aspirations.

We are able to tailor the curriculum to match the needs of students and offer a wide range of qualifications from Entry levels through GCSE to AS and A levels, in addition to vocational qualifications.

Maths

Functional maths is studied by most pupils entering our sixth form.  A variety of adult numeracy, GCSEs and AS/A-level courses can all be made available depending on the requirements of the pupils.

English

English is taught by our specialist English teachers.  Adult Literacy is a preferred course, but there is also the opportunity to study to GCSE.

ICT

The ICT course builds on the Key Stage 4 curriculum where pupils are taught skills such as data handling, spreadsheets, presentations and Computer Aided Design. We have more specialist software to simulate electronic circuits (crocodile clips), program computer circuits (Logicator), simulate computer control (Flowol) and 3D design programs (Inventor). Pupils are able to study ICT to GCSE and Entry Level qualification.

In the sixth form some students opt to study ITQ in IT User Skills based at the College.

Humanities

Our subject specialist teacher of the deaf is able to coach sixth form pupils through further academic qualifications from Short Course GCSEs through to A level.

Cope

Students may opt to study ASDAN Certificate of Personal Effectiveness (CoPE) Programme of Study Level 1 and/or Level 2.  This qualification is designed to enable the pupils to develop and demonstrate a range of personal, key and employability skills leading to personal effectiveness.

This qualification is comparable to different GCSE grades, depending upon the level. 

Design and Technology and Art 

Design and Technology and Art are popular sixth form options. Both are taught by subject specialist teachers 

In addition

Most subjects provided in Key Stage 4 can also be offered at Key Stage 5,  and most to GCSE level. Pupils may wish to consider re-sits to raise their GCSE grades.

Students may decide to have personalised timetables where they select College courses alongside core subjects taught through school . Timetables are tailored to the needs and aspirations of students and through consutation with them.
