‘Life at Sacred Heart is very rewarding – it offers an enormous range of possibilities within and beyond the classroom’

Upper School Curriculum

Sacred Heart’s Sixth Form Curriculum has been designed to allow students to follow a curriculum that meets their individual needs. Typically students will study 3 A Level subjects and may choose to do a fourth subject at AS Level. For each A Level subject there are four lessons a week in Year 12 and Year 13.

Rich Opportunities

Students regularly participate in SVP, Chaplaincy and other faith-based community service initiatives. Opportunities for liturgy and the celebration of Mass are regular features of Sixth Form life. All students will study toward the NOCN qualification in religious studies in a four day course.

Students are able to be active citizens sharing their talents within the College and local community. Leadership and responsibility is encouraged through school council, mentoring students, paired reading scheme, and links with partner primary schools and industry.

Other whole school activities can be accessed, such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the Sport Leadership Scheme. We seek to meet individual student needs in order to enhance each student’s opportunities within the Sixth Form. This has included a support programme for Oxbridge candidates and arrangements for Special Needs students.

Students are set challenging target grades for each subject and are assessed against these targets each term. Assessment of progress is reported to students and parents every half term. The student is then supported within College by adopting an individual action plan; this is likely to involve following a supervised study programme.
