Curriculum 6

A Levels

A Levels are two year courses with challenging exams at the end of the course which test the whole of the syllabus. There are no longer any units or resit opportunities during the two years.

Most students will choose to study THREE A Levels through Years 12 and 13.

Some of our most able students will study FOUR A Levels.

Whenever possible Highlands School will deliver these subjects through lessons based on site. The provision of any individual subject is based on student numbers with a minimum group size of 11. Highlands is an active member of the Enfield Sixth Form Consortium and we are able to offer minority subjects through collaboration with local schools.
