St. Robert’s welcomes all students wishing to study post-16. We offer breadth and clear progression in our academic and vocational courses.
It is most important to stress that the greatest care must be taken when Sixth Form courses are chosen as students should be aware that this may limit career opportunities later on.
Entry to examinations will depend on a student’s attendance, attainment, application and performance throughout the duration of the course. Students who fail to match any of the criteria for automatic entry may be allowed to pay to enter as external candidates.
This is a compulsory element of the Sixth Form curriculum at St Robert’s for all students not studying GCE Religious Studies. This course will take place in Year 12 and Year 13 for one hour per week. The course consists of Ethical theory and Practical Ethics modules. The students are introduced to philosophical thought and are able to develop critical and analytical approaches to study. These skills are highly valued and viewed as good preparation for university courses.
GCSE Examination Re-sits
Re-sit GCSE classes will be available in English and Mathematics and students who have not already achieved at least a grade 4 in these subjects will be required to remedy this in the Sixth Form. Please note: we require students who do not have a 4 grade in English and or Mathematics to re-sit these subjects in order to provide a foundation for further study and employment.
