Wimbledon High School is an A Level school. We regard our Sixth Form programme Inspire to be the best preparation for university for our students. For detail of our A Level courses click on the subject links in the menu on the left...
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. Within your scheduled weekly timetable, independent study periods will be built in, so you will learn about the importance of carrying out your own research and managing your time to allow plenty of opportunity for enrichment. Inspire pulls together strands of PSHE, Tutorial Support, PE, Enrichment, Open Mind and EPQ, e-ssentials, Striding Out, and Student Leadership - all to bring breadth and balance to your Sixth Form experience. You may end up running our Clever Clogs Conference.
Our Scholars' Programme allows students to go even deeper into their studies and to learn the discipline of rigorous academic research. The outcome of these cerebral wanderings is our joint OWLS scholarship journal with the girls of Oxford High School GDST.
As you consider 3 or 4 A level courses, you will receive lots of individually tailored advice about combinations of subjects, workloads and the expectations of universities. Our Sixth Form offers one-to-one tutorials, where tutors get to know students really well and help ensure you are working independently and getting the most out of your Sixth Form years. Many students do an Extended Project Qualification.
Enrichment opportunities abound; we want our Sixth Form girls to be enlightened people; people who make connections between disciplines; people who are excited by learning new and challenging things; people who buzz with ‘what if…?’ conversations.
Students have written an alternative prospectus with their thoughts on studying for A Levels as well as Sixth Form life in general. Do take a look:
