At Stafford Grammar School the vast majority of students choose four academic subjects in the Lower Sixth. These are usually studied for eight periods each in the two week timetable. The choice of A-level subjects that we offer is shown below.
All subjects are studied over the two years of the A level course. All students will take AS level examinations at the end of the Lower Sixth year in all of their chosen subjects and must pass at this level to be accepted onto the second year of the A-level course.
Subjects will only run if there is sufficient demand
In all subjects students will sit separate AS examinations, but these will not contribute to the final A-level grade.
In the Upper Sixth most students will choose to continue to study three of their chosen A-level courses or:
- Continue with all four A-level subjects.
- Continue with three of their chosen A-level subjects complemented by an additional AS subject or an Extended Project Qualification.
- Continue with three of their chosen A-level subjects supplemented by voluntary community service or additional enrichment activities.
