Key Stage 5 Curriculum

Key Stage 5 Curriculum

We currently offer an excellent range of A Levels and Level 3 BTEC qualifications in the Sixth Form. All students are required to choose at least three courses from those on offer (list below, although this is not fixed and is subject to change based on staffing and demand); there is flexibility for students to study four courses if they wish. Alongside this students study a core curriculum consisting of Spiritual Development, PSHE and Key Skills (an enrichment programme). They also have the opportunity to complete an EPQ.

At SJB we are committed to every student going on to a fulfilling career, being able to use the knowledge and skills learned at school and applying them across the rest of their lives. This is a key measure of success at SJB as it is only through ensuring that our students can successfully transition to their lives after school and establish themselves in work and in society that we will succeed in our aim of helping them to live by the schools values and leave SJB equipped to lead fulfilling lives and make a positive contribution to society. Careers education and guidance is critical in achieving this for our students and as such we provide an extensive range of careers support and guidance so that our students are supported, prepared and ready to take their next steps.

Over the course of the two years there are also plenty of opportunities to be involved in the Student Leadership Team, sports teams (either through the Sports Academy or by coaching the younger students) and wider life of the school.
