The Sixth Form Curriculum
Year 12 pupils are able to choose up to five Advanced Subsidiary level subjects (AS), although most of our pupils choose three or four.
In Year 13 pupils normally choose three of their AS subjects to continue to A2 level, as well as having the opportunity to take General Studies (or Critical Thinking) at AS level in January and A2 in June.
The subjects currently available for AS and A2 are:
These subjects are placed in subject blocks and most pupils choose one from each of 4 blocks. Every effort is made to accommodate all our pupils' desired options, whether existing pupils or pupils joining our Sixth Form from another school.
I think dividing people into different Houses is a great idea. It means you can make more friends, not just in your year group but right up to Year 13. I am glad my mum chose Durham School, its great!"
