Sixth Form Curriculum

Boys in Poetry (Y12) are generally expected to take four Advanced Level courses, continuing with three to A-Level in Rhetoric (Y13). More able pupils are able to discuss a wider offer of courses. Pupils taking our Level 2 programme are expected to follow a full range of courses in the offer, together with Maths and English GCSE re-sits. 

In general, boys are expected to enrol on courses taught at Wimbledon College. Reasons for taking courses at the Ursuline High School are:

  • that the subject is not taught at the College
  • timetable constraints mean that the subject cannot be taken at the College with other options
  • the content of the course is different

However, boys should note that priority for access to UHS courses is given to UHS students first.
We intend to offer the following subjects at Wimbledon College and in the Sixth Form partnership with the Ursuline High School from September 2015, though subjects and specifications may change subject to numbers opting for courses and any additional changes in government requirements:
