Sixth Form Curriculum

Pupils in the Lower Sixth Form choose three or four subjects to study for two years. Those who choose three subjects may also complete the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

In the Upper Sixth Form, pupils continue with their chosen subjects and complete their A Levels. Pupils who chose the EPQ in the Lower Sixth Form will finish it in the Upper Sixth Form.

All pupils also follow a Learning for Life programme, which includes modules on financial literacy, wellbeing, research skills, and Higher Education and careers advice. Pupils also have a fortnightly lecture series with visiting speakers.

Pupils considering medical-based degrees and careers are timetabled into a fortnightly Medics Group, where they learn more about these courses and careers and receive advice and support towards their applications.

Additional studies options

In addition to their three or four A Levels, pupils in the Upper Sixth Form also choose an additional studies option as a form of enrichment. These courses are offered in a wide variety of subjects, such as DIY, animation, law, and programming.

Enrichment opportunities

Sixth Formers have many opportunities to enrich their education beyond the classroom. These include the Learning for Life programme, the fortnightly lecture series, and the Medics Group. Pupils can also participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, such as sports clubs, arts societies, and volunteering projects.

“Bancroft’s provides a creative and supportive environment which focusses on encouraging personal growth; whether it be through music, theatre, sports or academia, all students leave Bancroft’s feeling more confident, more empowered and more ready for adult life.”
