Upton Hall School

Inspiring Young People

Curriculum

We offer a broad range of A Level subjects in order to prepare our students for higher education or alternative routes.  

A Level courses last two years; in year 12 students select three subjects plus a selection of enrichment courses, therefore affording breadth of study whilst also ensuring they benefit from the new linear specifications, which now allow more time for specific subject skill development.  Individual students may be advised to select four full A Levels owing to their academic achievement at GCSE and their ambitions to pursue highly competitive courses at university. (e.g. Oxbridge courses)

In Year 13 all students will continue with at least three full A Level subjects plus a selection of enrichment courses, with some students continuing to study four A Levels if taken in Year 12.

We run a comprehensive, weekly guest speaker programme to enrich our students' experience of Sixth Form life.  Our students are privileged to welcome key speakers from industry, politics and key public services amongst others.

For 2017/18, students will also be able to select one of the following enrichment options:
