Highfield has a successful, structured and vibrant Sixth Form. It operates in an appropriate and supportive manner reflecting the age and requirements of the students who are preparing for higher education and/or the world of work.
The Key stage 5 curriculum is a broad balanced curriculum giving students opportunities to develop their interests, knowledge and skills through studying 3 or 4 A Levels. To follow an A Level programme students need to achieve a minimum average GCSE point score of 4. To study Maths, English or Science the student needs a 6 in that subject and also if they wish to pursue Psychology at A Level, a 6 in English is required. Sixth Formers follow a two-year A Level course which could lead to university or college entrance, specialist training, apprenticeship or a job.
We are a member of the Consortium of Letchworth Schools with Fearnhill which enables students to follow one of their courses at another school, thus widening their choice of subjects, if their timetable does not fit at their host school.
