Wider Curriculum Offer
In addition to the A Level and Vocational Courses on offer at sixth form, Wimbledon College offers a wide range of non qualification activities which are designed to challenge and develop individuals and support their progression to their future career plans.
The PSHE programme at sixth form builds on prior learning at KS3 and KS4 building on four key themes; Relationships and Sex Education, Citizenship, Health and Wellbeing and Future Decisions. Whilst structured there is flexibility to adapt to student needs.
All Year 12 students are expected to go on one week of work experience at the end of the academic year in July.
