Curriculum Overview

At Sixth Form level, Years 13 and Year 14, a consortium arrangement operates between St Genevieve's and De La Salle College. This progressive partnership enables a wider range of subject choices to be offered to the students and ensures that the Entitlement Framework for Key Stage 5 is met. Classes at this level are often co-educational.

In Sixth Form, with the exception of a programme of Religious and Personal Education, all subjects are optional. The curriculum at Sixth Form is student-centred and is designed to meet the needs of learners as individuals. The curriculum offer is planned to maximise flexibility of choice for students and facilitates combining A-Level subjects with new Level 3 Applied courses and Level 2/GCSE courses.
