Post 16 Curriculum

Our aim is to create a flexible curriculum at the right level for each member of the Sixth Form. There are a number of pathways through post 16 education; each of these may can lead to university, apprenticeship or employment. You will receive professional, specific and detailed advice during your Post 16 Interview in January – March.

Whether a course runs will depend upon the number of students opting for it, however, we are committed to providing a breadth of choice.  A real strength of our school setting is that class sizes are small. This enables the building of excellent relationships with teachers and deep extensive learning opportunities. To ensure breadth of choice, it is also possible to study one ‘minority’ subject in another local school (i.e. if there is a low uptake of a subject across all Maidenhead schools, then the schools collaborate and allow student across the town to work together). These subjects are in Option E (Federation Subjects).
