Co-Educational 6th Form

  • Science_6thgroup

Our Co-Educational Sixth Form is vibrant, diverse, successful and growing. Nearly three quarters of students from Year 11 choose to stay on because they've discovered that our supportive staff and friendly atmosphere combine with challenging expectations and high standards to guarantee future success.

We also welcome many students from other schools. As they will tell you in their own words, they are convinced they have made the best choice.

Langley Park School for Girls has achieved an A-level pass rate of 99%, with 48% of its 742 post 16 entries achieving A*-B or equivalent grades. Students performed particularly well in Mathematics, where 59% of 39 entries gained A* -B grades. In Chemistry, nearly half of 27 entries attained A* - B grades. Similar results were achieved in Biology, Economics, Psychology and Media Studies. In English Language and Literature 60% of students gained A* - B grades. The school’s vocational results are also exceptional, with over 63% of 136 entries scoring distinction and starred distinction grades.

Seven students achieved 3 or more A*/A grades and one girl achieved one and two starred distinctions at BTEC . Two students are going on to Oxbridge and others either to ‘red brick’ universities or exciting careers based on outstanding outcomes in vocational subjects.

Dr Anne Hudson said: "These are outstanding results. I am thrilled that this year, with an even larger comprehensive Sixth Form cohort, we have improved upon last year’s results. Congratulations to all our hard working staff and students.“

Choosing Courses

There are a wide range of 6th form courses available

  • A Levels
    These require a general GCSE results profile of BBBBCCC or better. Most subjects stipulate their own GCSE grade requirements.To study A Levels you must meet both the general and specific GCSE criteria

 

  • BTEC Level 3
    These require a minimum of 5 grade Cs, preferably including both a grade 4 in English and Maths.
     
  • One/Two Year Certificate in Business & Administration

 

For A Level we use predicted GCSE grades to judge the suitability of your proposed courses as well as QCA score.
