Academic Curriculum

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.

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.
