Subject Information for 2022 Applicants

Sixth Form Curriculum

The Sixth Form at Sale Grammar School offers an academic rather than vocational curriculum.

This pathway through Further Education suits most of our students in Year 11 and attracts a significant number of students from other schools in the local area. Our curriculum is designed to enable students to choose a programme of study reflecting their individual interests and aspirations. We offer an extensive range of A-Level courses as shown below.

Students are taught for 9 one hour lessons per subject over a two week timetable. Private study time is also allocated to allow students to manage the wider reading and independent learning tasks demanded of A-Level students. In addition to this, students in Year 12 will have a fortnightly Skills for Life lesson and participate in a range of Personal Enrichment activities on a Wednesday afternoon.

Subjects

Students in Year 12 are required to select a minimum of three A-Level subjects; in addition to this, we do allow students to take a fourth subject to AS Level, should they wish to do so.

Students are also offered the opportunity to complete a Level 3 Academic Enrichment course (Core Maths, EPQ or Perspectives on Science) which will be completed during Year 12.

Our Option Blocks for the 2021-2022 academic year, and subject leaflets, can be seen below to provide you with an overview of the subjects we offer.

  • Update option blocks to final version which includes Computing AS.
  • Remove videos – just have linked documents at the bottom of the page (one per subject) called, for example, Biology A-Level Leaflet
