Key Stage 5 (Years 12 & 13)
The Sixth Form at The Buckingham School offers a broad curriculum for Post-16 students. There are a range of traditional A Level subjects available alongside BTEC vocational subjects. Combinations of academic and vocational subjects are possible, enabling students to develop a programme that is entirely suited to them as individuals.
Key Stage 5 students are offered a further enriched curriculum in subjects such as Sports Leadership, EPQ, Finance and Performing Arts. Sixth Form students are also expected to use allocated time for independent study.
Courses at Key Stage 5 are at Level 3, though some students may be resitting GCSE courses in English or Maths. The courses on offer are outlined below, although certain parameters must be met for a course to be viable. These include: staff availability, student numbers and financial viability. These parameters are reviewed each year with each different cohort.
