A Level Subjects

The majority of A Level pupils taught at The Royal School study three A Levels.

Each subject has five hours lesson time timetabled per week in Year 12 and another five hours per week in Year 13. Students are expected to spend at least the equivalent time working independently as background reading and individual research are vital for achieving high grades at A Level. We also offer some supervised study periods in Year 12 to encourage early adoption of effective work habits and to manage workloads with tutors and subject teachers.

External examinations for take place each year during May and June. The results for these are published in August.

The Sixth Form at The Royal provides a broad but mainly academic A Level programme with particular support for facilitating subjects. The standard entry requirement is six 9-4 grades at GCSE and it is an expectation that students achieve a grade 6 or above in any subject they choose to study for A Level. There is, however, a flexible entry requirement for existing pupils as we can continue to support their progress in our caring and inclusive Sixth Form community.
