Other options at 16 – Study more at Sixth Form and complete your A-Levels

Here at Temple Learning Academy we work with our Partner School, Temple Moor High School who offer a wide variety of courses in their Sixth Form, both traditional A Levels and vocational BTEC courses and a combination of the two.  All students will need to achieve 5 GCSEs at grade 4 to enter Sixth Form, although some subjects have specific entry requirements. For example, to study Biology at A Level, students need to have achieved 6-6 in Combined Science or 6 in Biology at GCSE and a grade 5 in Maths.  Students wishing to study predominately A Levels will also need a 4 grade in Maths and English. If students do not achieve a grade 4 in English or Maths they will need to re-sit that GCSE alongside their Sixth Form choices.
