Sixth Form

We offer A Level or Vocational pathways.

The differences being, A Levels are assessed through examinations with some providing coursework modules, whilst BTEC courses are more coursework based with some practical assessments or work experience.

St Mary’s students are encouraged to study three A Levels. The three A Levels will be studied in a two year programme. It will be possible for High Achievers to study four A Levels and they will also be included on our High Achievers programme.

Vocational students will study the equivalent of 3 A Levels through either a full vocational programme or they may choose from a combination of vocational and A Level subjects at an equivalent of one or two A Levels.

Resits in GCSE English, Mathematics and Science will be supported.
