6th Form Curriculum
WHS is an A level school. We consider our 6th Form curriculum to be the best preparation for university for our students - universities value the depth of knowledge A levels bring and we believe you will enjoy the flexibility of being able to play to your strengths in your choice of subjects. With a lighter scheduled weekly timetable, you will learn about the importance of time management and have plenty of opportunity for enrichment.
For many students, the shift from GCSE to A level is the greatest change they will encounter. From 10 or 11 subjects you will drop to 4 or 5. You will have more time to plan your own way of working and will have more responsibility to ensure that you deliver and work independently. It may take a while to settle into this new style, but one thing is certain, by the time you reach the end of Year 13 at Wimbledon High, you know what you as a person are about (where your interest lie) and you will be extremely well-prepared for your A level exams.
Academic work forms the inner core of our activities in 6th form. You study 5 or 4 AS subjects, then 4 or 3 A2 subjects. There is a completely free choice of subjects at AS level, and we give students all the advice and support you need to enable you to make wise decisions. For more information click here.
Supporting academic work and university applications are several other areas of the 6th form curriculum and these are found in the first “ring” around our core. Click here for more information
Widening horizons – developing interests and providing experiences relevant to university and career opportunities is crucial to the 6th form curriculum and forms the outer ring of our curriculum “wheel”. Click here for more information.
