Subject Information Videos

Our curriculum has been designed to give students the best possible future opportunities. We offer a wide range of A level subjects, but we also have a strong vocational and technical offer as well. All courses are Level 3, and equivalent in terms of UCAS points, and all will lead towards university study.

We offer a range of pathways at Marriotts Sixth Form, depending on your GCSE results and aspirations. We ask that the majority of students pick three courses to study in Year 12.

Technical and Vocational subjects have coursework elements and in some instances work placement. They are challenging in a different way, demanding commitment and organisation, but may be suitable if you struggle with the idea of exams.

Our teaching is geared around supporting students through the difficult early transition from GCSE, but as the year progresses, we look to ensure that students understand the core concepts and skills behind a subject, not just the best approaches to an exam. Above all, we believe that Sixth Form education is about enabling students to achieve whatever they aspire to in adult life.
