Sixth Form Curriculum Overview
Wymondham College believes in Pride, Passion and Positivity.
We will enable you to build on these three core values even more in the Sixth Form.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, and help you choose the best three A Level courses. Your teachers will support and encourage you to become an independent learner, to strive for the very best in all you do and to enjoy and celebrate your successes.
In addition to your academic choices, you have many options available to you to enrich your life while at the College. From opportunities in student leadership to the chance to represent the College in your favourite sport. Our hope is that you leave the College at the end of Year 13 as a well-rounded, happy, educated young person, ready to take on the world.
To help students achieve this aim, they will follow (from September 2020) our Floreat programme. In Year 12, students will have a fortnightly Floreat lecture and a fortnightly tutorial. The lectures will cover a range of topics from practical assistance in thinking about university courses and EPQ support alongside keynotes from internal and external speakers. The tutorials will be delivered by experienced members of staff. Students will rotate through a diverse range of tutorials as the year progresses with the aim of developing their knowledge and character virtues ready for life beyond the College.
In Year 13, students will have a fortnightly Floreat lecture. The content of this lecture will shift as the year unfolds, from practical advice on university applications and post-18 choices, wellbeing support as exams approach and other enriching topics of interest that sit outside of the A Levels that the students study.
Our Year 12 students have 11 hours per fortnight of taught time per subject. This reduces to 10 hours per fortnight per subject in Year 13 to allow students to have some additional independent study time to prepare for exams and for study at university. Our Floreat programme and Wednesday afternoon Games are in addition to this subject time for both years.
