We have removed the curriculum outlines A Level and other Key Stage 5 courses as they do not reflect the changes that have been made to enable delivery of remote learning and meet the adaptations to qualifications.

Course information remains available via the links provided.

For the 2022 examination series the following adaptations have been confirmed:

Art A Level 

There will be no exam board set task.  Grades will be awarded on the basis of students’ portfolios only.

Photography A Level 

There will be no exam board set task.  Grades will be awarded on the basis of students’ portfolios only.

Textiles A Level 

There will be no exam board set task.  Grades will be awarded on the basis of students’ portfolios only.

All other exam subjects

Exam boards will provide advance information about the focus of the content for all exams for the summer 2022 exams. 

In addition, the following decisions have been made to support students in the subjects specified below: 

  1. Exam boards will provide copies of the formulae sheet for use in teaching and to ensure that students are familiar with it prior to the exams. Clean copies of the formulae sheet will be provided in the exams.
  2. There will be changes to the requirement of non-examined assessment (coursework) in Drama, Geography, Product Design, Media Studies, Music, PE and in Vocational courses. 
  3. There will be more flexibility in delivery and assessment of practical work in Science subjects.
