Our post-16 curriculum seeks to ensure breadth of study as well as flexibility in choice and combination of subjects. All A Level subjects follow a two-year linear programme (internal end of year exams in Year 12, final public exams in Year 13). BTec Sport students, only, will sit a public examination in Year 12.
All students study a minimum of four subjects in Year 12. In Year 13, about 75% of students will continue with three subjects and approximately 25% will continue with four subjects.
The subjects we currently offer are:
Ancient History Art and Design
Biology Business Studies
Chemistry Computer Science
Design and Technology Economics
English Literature French
Mathematics Further Mathematics (may only be taken with Mathematics)
Spanish Sport (BTEC)
In addition to the four A level subjects students may add a 5th choice (Column E) and will also have a Games Afternoon where there are a wide variety of team and individual sports at various skill levels on offer. In Year 13 all students attend a weekly lecture or skills development activity.
The subjects we currently offer in Column E are:
Beginners Mandarin Chinese
Stage Lighting and Sound Team.
AS Further Mathematics (Year 13 only)
Sixth Formers contribute an enormous amount to the whole School and we encourage students to participate fully in the various co-curricular activities on offer. Students may work towards the RGS Gold Award which recognises excellent commitment to Volunteering, Leadership and Co-Curricular. Sixth Formers have also initiated and run many successful societies, mentored younger students, helped at a local hospice, taken part in sport, music and drama, the Wycombe Business Management Conference, World Challenge trips and much more besides.
