Pupils may study either A Levels or the International Baccalaureate. For those studying A Levels, there are five core elements to the PGS Sixth Form experience.
• Your Principal Academic Subjects.
You can choose either three or four A Level subjects, to study in depth.
• Academic Enrichment Curriculum.
This is about offering you academic breadth beyond your core subjects, as well as enabling you to drill down deeper into the topics you really love. The thinking skills you learn will enrich your work in all your subjects, and the research skills you learn will set you up for study beyond school.
• Personal Enrichment Curriculum.
This is about educating you as a whole person. It involves developing your skills of leadership, your understanding of yourself and the world around you, and bringing you into purposeful contact with our wider communities. This is a pioneering part of our curriculum offer, and we believe it is a very special part of what PGS can offer the future you.
• Beyond The Classroom.
Our co-curriculum – the clubs, activities, societies and trips that take place in lunchtimes, after school, at the weekend and in the holidays – are a hugely important part of developing your skills, of bringing balance and variety to your week, and above all, allowing you to pursue the activities you love. There is an astonishing array of activities to choose from.
• Tailored Support.
We set great store by caring for our pupils, and offering the support you need at every step of the way. We want you to be independent and resourceful; at the same time we realise that navigating your way through higher education pathways requires considerable investment of time and expertise. We are always here to help.
