Shireland Sixth Form

About Us

The courses available

You have a free choice of 3 subjects, which are studied for the 2 years. Occasionally we may be able to accommodate a fourth subject, based on individual merit. Each subject has an entry requirement which is located in the subject section of this prospectus. We have over 28 subjects available, both at A Level and at BTEC.

It can be a daunting prospect choosing the right 3 subjects. Our team of staff are here to help you every step of the way. Our Open Evening offers you a chance to discuss course content with subject teachers in more detail and meet current students studying the course. Our interview process also offers families and students the time to consider the suitability of the subjects chosen. Sometimes students change their minds after application, do not worry, this can be accommodated through discussions with the Sixth Form team throughout the academic year, remember, we are here to help you.
