At Dallam Sixth Form you can choose to study A Levels, BTECs or a combination of the two.  

In Year 12, students study three subjects plus one of our academic enrichment options and personal development classes. Four subjects is also possible, following discussion and agreement with the Head of Sixth Form.   

Take a look through our current Sixth Form curriculum booklet to see:

  • the range of subjects on offer
  • entry requirements
  • course outline and assessment
  • what careers the course could lead you to
  • some interesting resources, like podcasts, to explore the subject further. 

Our subject offer may change slightly for Sept 2022 intakes.

Academic enrichment options 

By including an academic enrichment option in the Dallam Sixth Form curriculum our students gain extra valuable knowledge and skills that are highly regarded by future employers and universities.   

The options are: 

Core mathematics 

It supports the content in other subjects like the sciences, geography, psychology and business and by studying core mathematics, students will have a wider choice of careers pathways and be better equipped for many university courses. 


Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

Highly regarded by universities and employers, the EPQ introduces students to independent project management. Through this course planning, research, critical thinking, analysis, synthesis, evaluation and presentation skills are developed. The qualification is worth the equivalent of an AS Level. 


Languages for business 

This new and innovative Ofqual-approved qualification is practical and meaningful, promotes independent, confident and effective linguists and encourages learners to use language skills for career enhancement, economic benefit and provide them with a competitive edge in the global marketplace. 


Sports Leadership qualification 

This course gives students the opportunity to learn and demonstrate important life skills such as effective communication and organisation whilst learning to coach and deliver physical activities to all ages and within the community.   

The Sports Leaders UK Level 3 Award in Higher Sports Leadership can be undertaken in Year 13 and is a nationally recognised qualification worth 16 UCAS points. 


Personal development 

Our goal at Dallam Sixth Form is to ensure our students leave us in Year 13 as mature, confident and responsible members of society ready to take on the world. 

As part of the Dallam Sixth Form curriculum there is an opportunity for students to focus on and develop additional skills and qualities that will have a considerable impact on personal growth.  We expect all our sixth formers to undertake aspects of the following areas of personal development during their time with us: 

  • careers and finance 
  • citizenship and ethics 
  • healthy living 
  • personal safety  
  • personal wellbeing 
  • relationships and sex education.
