Sixth Form Curriculum
Hardenhuish Sixth Form is consistently one of the highest performing school sixth forms in Wiltshire. In the most recent Sutton Trust research into university access we are the highest performing comprehensive school in Wiltshire for access to selective universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Sixth form students have many privileges within the school and rightfully so.
Students have much to give in return and each year they contribute in many ways to the whole ethos of the school. Sixth form students set examples in their work, behaviour and support for others. Students are encouraged to study three or four A level subjects in the sixth form. Some students may also complete the extended project qualifications and/or the level 3 core maths course during Y12/13, to further enhance their curriculum vitae. The level 3 sports leaders programme is also offered as an additional qualification. Information, advice and guidance to help students make the right choices, both for A level study and beyond, are a priority at Hardenhuish.
The subject choices are important from a career point of view and from a broader educational perspective. In recent years we have seen a significant and sustained growth in our sixth form. Many students transfer into our sixth form from other schools. The sixth form currently has around 300 students.
The A levels currently being offered by the school are:
Art and Design
Design Technology (Food or Product Design)
Drama and Theatre Arts
Government and Politics
