Sixth Form

Sixth Form at AIS.

The Sixth Form, or Key Stage 5, is the final two years of education before university.

Students follow a much more focused programme of study, allowing them to dedicate their time to the subjects in which they wish to continue later.

Taught by subject specialists, students follow the British A level curriculum in up to 5 subjects, including Spanish, regularly gaining top grades. They may also study 2 subjects within the Spanish curriculum in order to prepare for Selectividad and possible entry into Spanish universities.

Throughout the Sixth Form, students also follow a structured PSHE programme, which is delivered by their tutors. This focuses on study skills, becoming an independent adult, applying to university and learning more about current affairs in Europe and world-wide.

The Sixth Form students have their own study area. They also have their own private recreation area outside, for use in break and lunchtime, equipped with table-tennis tables. Students have the opportunity to take on more responsibility for example; through working with primary and assisting Key Stage 3 readers.

Our Sixth Form ethos is for students to aim for the highest grades, whilst growing into adults with skills who have a sense of responsibility and self discipline, within a caring and supportive community.
