Academic and Extra-curricular Programme
Typical Weekly Schedule
The final look of your timetable will depend on your choice of subjects, typical college day is between 9am and 5pm, with lessons normally finishing at 4pm.
In the first year of A levels, each subject is allocated five hours per week. In the second year of A levels this changes to six hours per week.Most students take three A level subjects.
Although each student's schedule may vary, here is a timetable for a typical A level student.
|9 - 11||Economics||Economics||Mathematics|
|11 - 1||Mathematics||Academic
|1 - 2||Lunch|
|2 - 3||Further
|3 - 4||Mathematics|
In most cases students will be taking their final exams at the end of the second year. Students on one-year programmes will sit all of their papers at the end of that year.
Your timetable is likely to contain some free periods, in which you’ll be able to complete homework assignments, prepare for presentations and tests, or socialise with your friends. There are two common spaces on campus to spend your free periods: the student lounge/cafeteria and the student library. The garden is also available during the summer months.
There are regular social activities, a welcome and end-of-year party, subject related trips and clubs.
Lower Sixth Enrichment Programme
The enrichment programme is intended to broaden your horizons and inspire you to gain further knowledge in a broad range of areas. It comprises of a series of seminars, workshops and lectures which go beyond your college curriculum. The EPQ can also form part of the enrichment programme.
Amazing school. Great teachers. Absolutely recommend sending your son/daughter for A-levels and GCSE.
All I can say is, the college is well placed and no student will feel that he/she has been left alone.
I got my A level results what I deserved and I am happy with it.
The leadership and education at this school is fantastic, they really pushed me to do my best and as a result I got into the University of my choice. Teachers Séan and Michael are in particular really great, and I highly recommend them and the institution that they work within.
Spent two years here. The college is small so you get lots of one to one attention which is very helpful in sixth form. It’s a very friendly environment to be in and I would recommend it.
This is a wonderful school! The teachers not only care about academic success but also about each student's wellbeing. It has a very welcoming atmosphere and encourages everyone to achieve their objectives. I can't recommend it enough!
