The University of Birmingham School
offers a traditional academic curriculum
in the Sixth Form
Our Sixth Form Subjects.
The University of Birmingham School offers a traditional academic curriculum in the Sixth Form; we want our students to have the widest range of options when they consider their next steps into employment or higher education so our curriculum is based around the ‘Facilitating Subjects‘ recommended by the Russell Group of leading UK universities.
These are outlined in the Informed Choices guide which includes advice on the best subject combinations for a wide range of university courses, as well as advice on the best choices if you don’t know what you want to study after school and need to keep your options open. We recommend all potential applicants read this useful guide.
You’ll be taught by subject specialists.
At Sixth Form, you will study three core A-level subjects*, each a two-year linear qualification with exams at the end of Year 13. Each A level course is led by an experienced subject leader, supported by a team of inspiring teachers who bring outstanding subject knowledge and an impressive commitment to the ethos of our ambitious and distinctive School. As well as being taught by outstanding secondary school teachers, University of Birmingham School students benefit from the wide-ranging high-level research already undertaken by teachers in the school, as well as their links to research communities at the University of Birmingham and beyond.
*Students studying Mathematics can also opt for Further Mathematics as an additional fourth A-level.
