Our specialist Sixth Form staff and tutors work with pupils individually during the Fifth Form to start to consider A Level options, these are finalised after GCSEs. Lancing encourages pupils to choose four subject options at A Level, with/without an Extended Project Qualification.
The Sixth Form Choice 2019 booklet provides information about each subject, and the course requirements.
Below is the blocking system from 2018–2019 which indicates the A Level (plus BTEC and Pre-U) subject offerings in the Sixth Form:
SIXTH FORM OPTIONS GRID 2019
- Further Mathematics (Block C) must be accompanied by Mathematics (Block D)
- Sport BTEC has to be taken as a two A Level equivalent, ie in Blocks B and D
- Business BTEC is a one A Level equivalent
During the penultimate Fifth Form term pupils make provisional A Level subject selections.
This information informs the blocking system, which changes slightly each year.

A Level results day
We know that results day can be an anxious time. The College has prepared a quick guide with recommendations on what to do on the day.
Pupils in the Sixth Form are well-served by knowledgeable teachers who have high expectations and an infectious enthusiasm for their subjects. Results at A Level in 2016 indicate pupils make excellent progress, with over half of grades achieved at A* or A.
