Curriculum & Results

Curriculum

Our sixth form offers students a wide range of both A-level and BTEC courses; the curriculum includes everything from academic A-Levels, preferred by Russell Group Universities, to vocational courses that have a clear progression route to a specific career.  We advocate a variety of opportunities and ensure that students are given the time and guidance to experience the multitude of pathways that are presented to them, at this point of their education. These include regular work experience placements; enrichment opportunities and the chance to improve GCSE Maths and English qualifications. Furthermore, students also attain an EPQ qualification while studying at Wolverley Sixth Form, this additional qualification supports the development of fundamental independent research and study skills which are vital for success at A-Level and further higher education. We are proud to be actively involved in the preparation for students’ next steps; our academic enrichment lessons focus on higher education, UCAS applications, careers and opportunities beyond school. We also showcase a network of local universities and provide workshops to support students in choosing university courses, writing personal statements and understanding student finance.

Results

We pride ourselves for on our high standards of results in both academic and applied courses. Attainment at Wolverley Sixth Form is reflective of our high-quality teaching and the studious and determined attitude of our learners. Last year, 48% of our students continued into Higher Education and the rest of the cohort pursued apprenticeship or work opportunities. At Wolverley, our students leave with the necessary qualifications and attributes, whether heading into University life or the world of employment.
