In Key Stage 5, students are in non-compulsory education. The focus of our Sixth Form is to prepare students for university studies. We do not offer vocational training. The curriculum follows A-level courses in the British Curriculum and Pruebas de Competencia Especifica (PCE) courses in the Spanish curriculum. Students study the same subjects in both Year 12 and Year 13.
