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 2018 booket provides information about each subject, and the course requirements.
During the penultimate Fifth Form term pupils make provisional A Level subject selections.
This information informs the blocking system, which changes slightly each year.
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 2018-2019
- Further Maths must be accompanied by Maths
- Sport (BTEC) has to be taken as a 2 A Level equivalent, i.e. in Blocks B and D.
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.
