16-19 Study Programme Requirements

Here at Manor Academy, it is our goal that all students who enter the Sixth Form, Manor College, do so from an informed viewpoint. Through a careful selection process involving preliminary interviews, the open evening, and a more detailed one-to-one interview schedule, students have a study programme shaped around their attainment to date (based on predicted grades initially, but refined in light of achieved grades before commencing the Sixth Form), education and career goals.

Study programmes include substantial academic qualifications in the form of A-levels (with some AS levels available where applicable) and in future will include applied and vocational qualifications. We also offer an Extended Project Qualification to all of our students to supplement their studies and show future employers/educational institutions a student’s broader research based skills.

Where students gain entry to Sixth Form without English/maths GCSE graded 9 -4, we timetable sessions for them with specialist teachers to complete their qualifications as soon as possible.

Study programmes are focused on progression to the next level of education, whether that is through traineeship, apprenticeship, Higher Education or other employment. We work closely with local providers and also with more national providers, to offer students work experience and a comprehensive view on apprenticeships. University visits, outreach visits and careers fair visits complete our programme of information on the next steps.
