In sixth form, we follow the Edexcel BTEC level 3 in Applied Science course. All students are required over the course of the two years to complete the 60 credit qualification titled BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Applied Science. This consists of 3 mandatory units which are completed in year 12;

Unit 1 – Fundamentals of science
Unit 2 – Working in the science industry
Unit 4 – Scientific practical techniques

Students can achieve pass, merit and distinction grades at the end of year 13 if they complete all of the required tasks for each unit at that level. To achieve a merit grade, students need to complete all of the criteria for a pass as well as merit. The same is true for a distinction. More detailed descriptors for each unit can be found below.
