Advanced Levels and Advanced Subsidiaries
In Year 12 girls will embark on four, and occasionally five, AS subjects, leading to external examinations at the end of Year 12. They will then convert at least three of these into full Advanced level (A2) subjects in Year 13; stronger students may choose to convert all four.
The Year 12 timetable is constructed to meet the greatest number of student preferences. Certain subjects and combinations are dependent on student demand and the availability of staff. As students go through to Year 13, small classes in the same subject may be combined.
All students also take AS/A level General Studies and use that as part of their AQA BACCALAUREATE qualification. Details are given in the subject descriptions section. Extension lessons (e.g. for Oxbridge preparation or Advanced Awards) run in Year 13 in those subjects for which there is such a demand.
