Our Sixth Form Subjects
The University of Birmingham School offers a traditional curriculum of academic A-level subjects in the Sixth Form. Based on the list of ‘Facilitating Subjects‘ recommended by the Russell Group of leading UK universities, we want our subject combinations to provide students with the widest range of options when they consider their next steps into employment or higher education.
If you are not sure which A-Level choices are right for you, the Russell Group’s Informed Choices Guide includes advice on preferred 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.
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 teaching staff, students at the University of Birmingham School benefit from the wide-ranging and 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.
