Teaching, learning and outcomes
The Highlands Sixth Form curriculum is ambitious and designed to educate students in the best possible way in each subject, and to build cultural capital. The curriculum at Highlands is delivered by a team of well qualified teachers who are leaders in their fields. Examples of our teaching staff include:
- Dr Len who has published work and has over 20 years experience in university and commercial research laboratories.
- Dr Hurst is a fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching and a visiting fellow of Kings’ College London. He will also be publishing a book on British history.
- Ms Wilton is currently working with a number of other schools to support their work on their science curriculum.
- Mr Duce has delivered subject-specific lectures to English teachers across the country.
The impact of teaching and learning can be seen by the outcomes of the KS5 exams in 2021/22:
- 69% A*-B in A level
- 49% D*-D in BTEC
- ALPS 2 in A level
Please see the full set of KS5 results from 2021/22 in the downloadable document below.

Uneven impact of the pandemic on 2021/22 school and college performance data
The government recommends:
- Not making direct comparisons with data from previous years or between schools or colleges.
- Discussing with the school or college factors that may have influenced these results and consider a range of information when forming a view on how well a school or college is doing, including pupil/student population information.
