STUDYING A LEVELS AT LUCKLEY SIXTH FORM CENTRE

With a brand new 6th form study area, a dedicated and highly qualified team of teachers and an impressive record of securing first choice university places it is hardly surprising that the sixth form at Luckley is attracting more and more students from other schools.

We pride ourselves on specialist, small-group teaching, with one-to-one support from tutors. You will be given the freedom to stretch yourself academically while learning to use time responsibly, just as you will need to do at university or in the workplace.

We offer over 20 subject choices at A Level and details can be found in the Subject Choices booklet. You can choose from a variety of options, following a detailed discussion with the Head of Sixth Form to assist in your decision. Most students will follow a 3 A Level programme plus an EPQ.

LESSON 11

In addition to your taught lessons, each subject has an additional independent lesson. These take place over a two week timetable and allow the chance for you to consolidate the extensive content covered in lessons. These supervised lessons are often mixed with Year 12 and 13 students and may cover a range of subjects being studied. This helps to provide more structure in Sixth Form non-contact time

THE EXTENDED PROJECT QUALIFICATION (EPQ)

The EPQ allows students to embark on a largely self-directed and self-motivated project. You will choose a topic, then plan, research and develop your idea. Creativity and curiosity is encouraged. A project topic can be directly related to your main study programme, looking further from the set specification, or it can be something totally unrelated to your A Level choices. The finished product may take the form of:
• a research-based written report
• a production (e.g. a charity event, fashion show or sports event etc)
• an artefact (e.g. a piece of art, computer game, realised design etc).

SCHOLARSHIPS

Academic, Art, Sports, Music and Drama scholarships are available for Year 12 entry. Examinations take place in the autumn term prior to entry the following September.

 

“The small size of Luckley has been particularly beneficial during university applications as it allowed my personal statement and UCAS form to be tailored to the universities I applied to. The balance of work and fun has allowed me to thrive. I am leaving Luckley prepared and looking forward to university.” Sarah, Head Student 2018-19
