Courses - Level 3

HP6 offers a range of level 3 courses for 16-19 year olds and it is expected that students will study 3 A-level subjects. There is the opportunity for students to study 4 subjects if they wish but please note they must have achieved at least 5 A’s or above at GCSE. All students who are yet to achieve English and Maths GCSE’s at grade C or above will be expected to retake these courses.

All students will have regular 1 to 1 progress sessions as part of their assembly which supports their academic and personal progress, advising on career and university choices. The Director and Assistant Directors of Sixth Form are always available for additional advice and support and closely monitor and track the progress of each student. Our office is located just off the Common Room encouraging students to have easy access to speak with us whenever necessary.

During the year parents/carers are kept well informed of the students’ progress through consultation evenings, written reports and also phone calls and meetings where necessary. Teachers complete reporting on progress grades once every half term which allows the Sixth Form Team to closely monitor individual’s progress and implement additional support if needed.

At HP6 we have strong partnerships with local Universities including Sussex, Brighton and Chichester. Students have the opportunity to speak to current university students, advisors and visit the university campuses as part of a detailed Higher Education Programme. This supports students with their application process and raises aspirations for students who may be the first in their family to go to university.
We also help students with their university applications offering UCAS workshops and help with filling in their UCAS forms. Students wishing to put in an application to Oxford and Cambridge are actively encouraged and support with the interview process for all universities is part of our programme. This year we saw 8 students successfully applying to Oxbridge with 4 receiving an offer.

We take our students’ futures very seriously and therefore provide Careers education and guidance throughout their time with us at Sixth Form. Students also attend group events to prepare them for their lives after Sixth Form. We aim to support all students with their transition from HP6 and prepare them for the next phase in their lives, whether that be university, further college education, employment or training such as apprenticeships.
