Key Stage 5 curriculum

About KS5

Having successfully completed GCSE/IGCSE examinations, students will move into the Sixth-form (year 12 & 13). The teacher/student ratio is even more impressive as students are taught in tutorial style classes with a vast degree of support and attention from teachers. 

Students can also study an EPQ of their choice. This counts as half an A-Level and is highly recognised by Universities.

During PSHE and careers lessons, students can research University choices and course requirements to make informed decisions about A-Levels - although we always suggest that students should choose subjects that they enjoy.

Year 12 and 13 students use Unifrog to help research and prepare for university application and support students with the UCAS application.

The school uses two examining boards for its A-levels: Cambridge and Pearson/Edexcel. The New School offers the following subjects at ‘AS’ and ‘A’ level:

  • English Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Further Mathematics
  • History
  • French
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Art
  • Computer Science
  • Politics

At the end of the course students receive a grade in each subject from ‘A’ to ‘E’. Universities will make an offer of a place conditional on a number of pass grades.

Students can also study the lingustico e culturale part of the maturità.
