Sixth Form options 2019-2021

Students in the Sixth Form study subjects from the following list:

Classical Civilisation
Maths and Further Maths
Computer Science
Maths and Further Maths AS
English Literature
Further Maths
Theatre Studies
Extended Project AS

Please choose your options from the list of subjects in the drop down boxes below. Please choose from either three or four option choices selecting 'No Option' in one block if you wish to only opt for three choices. This is perfectly legitimate and over 50% of students at Reading School complete three A Levels rather than four. A very small number of students who opt to study Maths and Further Maths in Block A also study subjects in each of the other blocks giving them 5 A Levels. This is only a sensible option if each of the 5 A-Levels studied is on track for an A* grade. There is very limited value studying five A-Levels if at least three of them are not awarded top grades. Over the last five years on average just 3% of students have completed 5 A-Levels. Please note, as per the Sixth Form Information Booklet, those wishing to study Mathematics and A Level Further Mathematics in Block A, a GCSE grade 9 and a grade A in the FSMQ (Additional Maths - OCR 6993/01) is required.

Please choose your options from the list of subjects in the drop down boxes below:

Subjects to be taken at Reading School

Every effort will be made to offer the subjects listed in the option blocks. However, applicants are advised that if student numbers for a particular subject are low it may not be possible to run the course.
