Sixth Form Options

Our Sixth Form curriculum allows students to immerse themselves in the subjects that they love. They can focus entirely on their vocational development or pursue academic interests alongside their passion for the performing arts.

A choice of three different learning pathways ensures students can select the course of study best suited to their talents and ambitions.

  • BTEC pathway & one A Level
  • BTEC pathway & two A Levels (equivalent to five A Levels)
  • Three or four A Levels

Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma: Acting | Dance | Musical Theatre

A Levels: Art | History | History of Art | Dance | Drama & Theatre Studies | English Literature | Film Studies | Maths | Music | Photography

Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma

The Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma carries the equivalent UCAS points to three A Levels. Each course teaches students the professional and personal skills that will help them to move forward on their chosen path, be it continued training or employment. Alongside vocational training, students explore the history and business of the sector, which gives them a clear insight into the opportunities and demands of the creative industry.

“All our teachers are experienced professionals in the arts, so they teach us about what can happen after ArtsEd in a realistic way.”
