Content and Organisation of the Curriculum

Sexey’s Sixth Form offers post-16 provision for students progressing from Sexey’s own Year 11, those choosing to join us from local 11-16 providers and those who wish to board from further afield.

Sexey’s offers a mainly academic curriculum with A Level subjects offered from September 2018 including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Mathematics, Further Maths, Design Technology, English Literature, French, History, Government and Politics, Sociology, Business, Geography, Art & Design, Photography, Drama, Religious Studies and a B Tec diploma in Sport and Exercise Science. 

Students entering Year 12 in 2018 will choose three subjects from option blocks provided by school, which they will continue to A Level examination at the end of Year 13. Many students also complete the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). However in some cases the programme of study may be personalised to meet the specific needs of the student.

The school operates from Monday to Friday on a 50 period fortnightly timetable, each period being an hour long. Each A level subject is timetabled for 9 hours per fortnight. In addition the timetable offers provision for students to choose a sporting activity for up to 2 hours a week, every Thursday afternoon. The activities on offer include rugby, hockey, football and netball, badminton, pilates, circuits, swimming, tennis, cricket, rounders, (activities vary by season). Students will also attend a fortnightly tutor session and morning registration. The school also has a termly Religion and Philosophy event. 

Our mission statement stresses that we are “teaching students to think independently, act wisely and be fully engaged in a challenging and changing world”. 

In the sixth form, students make excellent progress. In 2017, 41% of students achieved A*-A, 69% of students achieved A*-B and 88% achieved A*-C, well above the national average (which for A*-A was 26%). Most students progress onto their preferred university - in Summer 2017, 84% achieved places at their first choice university.

There is a renewed focus on assessment and feedback at Sexey’s and there are protocols for assessment, marking of literacy and extended writing. At all times the focus is on supporting students to make the next steps to improve their learning. Student progress reviews occur five times a year and the data is analysed through Sisra and Alps.

A policy for those with additional educational needs is available on request from school. As part of the school’s Teaching and Learning Policy teachers are encouraged to use a wide range of teaching strategies to suit the learning styles of individual students.
