King James' School

Advanced Courses

King James’s Sixth Form has an excellent record of results at Advanced Level and continues to offer a broad and balanced choice of subjects and courses.

To progress onto Advanced Level study we ask our students to have at least 5 GCSE at A*- C and in some cases grade B for specific courses; these are outlined on the subject pages.

Most Year 12 students will study four courses in Year 12, sit external examinations at the end of the year and then keep their three strongest or most useful options through to Year 13. When making your choices for Post 16 studies please keep the following in mind:

  • Academic strength

  • Genuine passion for the subject

  • Type of course and assessment methodology

  • Progression opportunities for Post 18

  • Combination of subjects and type of learning

Please read the subject pages very carefully ensuring you are making informed choices about your immediate future as well as supporting your long term plans.

Questions are good! Make sure you talk to subject staff or the Sixth Form team to find reliable guidance that will support you.
