Years 12 & 13 Curriculum

We have a wide range of courses available in our Sixth Form which will help students to go on to either further study at University or College or possible employment.  Choosing subjects to study at either A-Level or at Level 3 BTEC is a difficult decision to make and we would encourage all students to talk to us throughout the application process. 

If you are a student who is thinking of applying for a place at one of the top (Russell Group) universities you should give serious consideration to ensuring your overall A-Level package is made up of predominantly “Facilitating Subjects”.  The Facilitating Subjects are specifically; English Literature, Mathematics, Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, History, Geography, French or German. 

All Year 11 students, whether from Rivington and Blackrod High School or elsewhere, who wish to enter our Sixth Form, will be provided with advice and guidance to help them with their choices.  All entrants must have five GCSEs at Grade C or above and Grade B in the subjects they wish to study at A-Level.

We have a wide range of courses available and we would encourage students to look at our Sixth Form prospectus and look in more detail at the Sixth Form area of our website.  For further information, please contact Mr P Canning on 01204 333266 or email pcanning@rbhs.co.uk
