Departmental Information

The majority of our students begin year 12 on four A level courses, usually moving onto three in year 13.  A small number of students studying Maths and Further Maths may wish to study 5 subjects, but this is the exception rather than the norm. Many students also elect to complete an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), an area in which our students have had outstanding success.

Subjects currently on offer at Pate's Sixth Form are:
Art, Biology, Chemistry, Computing, Drama & Theatre Studies, Economics, English, French, Geography, German, History (Early Modern and Modern pathways), Maths, Further Maths, Music, Physics, Physical Education, Politics, Psychology, Philosophy Theology & Ethics (PTE) and Spanish.

In 2021, for our virtual Open Evening, each department produced a film which will give you some information about A Level studies, and a selection of quotes from sixth form students to give you an insight into each subject, and what it is like to study at A Level.

You will also find a contact email for each department so that if, after you have watched the film and read all the information, you have further questions, you can get in touch with Heads of Department.
