At Sackville, we are committed to offering every individual a journey in </p><p>the sixth form that suits and challenges their own unique needs and talents. Selecting the right course of study is therefore vital and our dedicated staff will offer support and guidance to help you make those choices. </p><p> Our sixth form is excellent: an exciting and vibrant community where exam </p><p>results are high, students make good progress, facilities are modern and where the culture of opportunity and responsibility thrives. We are proud of our success at university entrance, including to Oxbridge and Russell Group institutions. </p><p> In addition to academic excellence, we are committed to providing a wide range </p><p>of opportunities through which our year 12 and year 13 students can develop the self-confidence, social skills and resilience that will help them to succeed in higher education, pursue a rewarding career and make a positive contribution to </p><p>their community. We offer all of our students the chance to learn and grow, the right to be listened-to and the right to express themselves. We are proud to be </p><p>your local sixth form provider and, for those of you currently at Sackville, we have the advantage of already knowing you well! This is particularly helpful when you are making that significant leap from GCSE to higher level studies. Of </p><p>course, we also offer a particularly warm welcome to those joining us from elsewhere. Our strong tutorial and pastoral system ensures that you will settle in </p><p>very quickly and soon feel a valued member of our community. We always focus on keeping class sizes small to ensure the best quality support and achievement. </p><p>Students who make the decision to join Sackville sixth form can expect to leave us as independent learners, active members of the community and confident in </p><p>the pursuit of their chosen goals. In the 21st century we will all have to be more flexible and better equipped to meet change. Certain human values, however, do not change. At Sackville we hope you will join us in meeting the challenge of </p><p>producing fine, high achieving citizens for this exciting future. </p><p>We look forward to welcoming you! </p><p> Julian Grant Headteacher </p></li><li><p>Sackville School East Grinstead: Post-16 Prospectus 2017-19 </p><p>4 </p><p>Choosing your courses You need to think carefully about the courses you are applying for. Maybe you already have an idea of the kind of career you wish to pursue at 18. Perhaps you have in mind a university course. If so, you need to ensure that you choose the courses which support your plans. If you are in doubt you can talk to a careers adviser or to Mr Whitehead (dwhitehead@sackvilleschool.org.uk) or Mrs Valentine (hvalentine@sackvilleschool.org.uk) in the sixth form area. </p><p>To join us at Sackville for level 3 study (A level or equivalent) you usually need the minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 4/C or higher. This is known as the level 2 threshold. Some courses will also have specific entry guidelines of their own, though we will always look at students on an individual basis if they are close to achieving the entry guideline. Once you have achieved the level 2 threshold, there are two types of course you can choose from: </p><p> A levels: these are the traditional academic qualifications which may well be what your parents experienced </p><p> Vocational qualifications (for example Cambridge nationals and technicals): these </p><p>qualifications are equal to A levels in the eyes of most universities. They are, however, more </p><p>vocational courses which mean they are focused on particular activities such as business, ICT and media. They are assessed with extended tasks of the kind likely to be met in the world of work, and some written exams. </p><p>Our experience suggests that students who achieve mainly 4/Cs at GCSE are best suited to the vocational qualifications. If you think this is likely to be you, try not to choose more than </p><p>one traditional A level. It is also possible to mix both types of course when choosing a post-16 programme. </p><p> Of course, every year there are students who do not achieve the level 2 threshold. For such </p><p>students we offer a different level 2 course, the BTEC Level 2 First Certificate in Business and the European Computer Driving Licence. Each of these qualifications can lead to successful A level study. </p><p>Any student who does not achieve a grade 4 in English or maths will be required to study </p><p>the subject again. </p><p> Sixth form teaching can take place during lesson 6 (3-4pm). Sixth form tours/taster sessions available all year; please email - hunderdown@sackvilleschool.org.uk </p><p>If students have additional educational needs please contact Mrs Hunt (SENDCo), to </p><p>discuss their post-16 studies shunt@sackvilleschool.org.uk </p><p>Key Dates Receive sixth form prospectus: November, year 11 </p><p>Attend sixth form open evening: November, year 11 Complete and return enclosed application form: Christmas, year 11 Attend sixth Form returners evening for parents: summer, year 11 Enrolment: September, year 12 </p></li><li><p>Sackville School East Grinstead: Post-16 Prospectus 2017-19 </p><p>5 GCE A levels </p><p>Sixth Form Study The Sackville approach Over the last three years A levels have undergone significant reform, and are now completely assessed at the end of year 13. AS levels </p><p>remain as a stand-alone qualification, but the exams taken for an AS level no longer contribute to the overall A level grade. </p><p>As a result of this, many schools and colleges have restricted the choices of students to three A levels or vocational courses, with no fourth subject. </p><p> However, at Sackville we are </p><p>committed to offering students the breadth of a curriculum </p><p>with four subjects. In part this is because we believe that </p><p>to narrow to three subjects at the age of 16 does not offer </p><p>students the breadth of curriculum needed in the </p><p>twenty-first century. </p><p>It further benefits students to </p><p>take an externally assessed level 3 qualification prior to the </p><p>high stakes terminal assessment of their A levels, and universities will view a good AS level </p><p>grade favourably. </p><p>Students coming to Sackville are therefore asked to choose three two-year courses and one one-year course. We offer the following subjects </p><p>at AS level. </p><p>Psychology Biology </p><p>Business Chemistry </p><p>Economics </p><p>English language English literature </p><p>Geography History </p><p>Maths </p><p>PE/Sport Physics </p><p>Politics Product Design </p><p> All vocational courses can be chosen as a one-year or two-year course. </p><p>AS Option </p><p>A2 Option 1 </p><p>A2 Option 2 </p><p>A2 Option 3 </p><p> A2 Exams Y13 </p><p>AS Exam </p><p>Y12 </p></li><li><p>Sackville School East Grinstead: Post-16 Prospectus 2017-19 </p><p>6 A levels </p><p>Art and Design A Level Entry guidance: grade B in Art and Design </p><p> The art department offers A level in art and design. The popular Fine Art endorsement allows students to pursue creative projects using the disciplines of painting, printmaking and sculpture. </p><p>The Art and Design course consists of: Component 1 (Coursework): An in-depth personal investigation into a theme of the students choice. Developmental work will lead to exciting final outcomes in a range of media. This investigation is backed up by in-</p><p>depth research, into relevant artists work. Gallery visits help to inform this work. Component 2 (Externally Set Assignment): A broad theme is given to </p><p>students, who then pursue their ideas in an individual way, leading to a timed practical exam at the end of the course. All work is presented in our </p><p>final A level exhibition, which is assessed by our external moderator. Why study Art? Through intensive workshops in drawing, painting, printmaking and mixed media, students further develop their practical skills alongside knowledge of the formal elements in art. All students also have the opportunity to work in our well-equipped specialist studios. </p><p>In year 12, a thematic approach to each term encourages students to develop and extend their own ideas. This personal direction is expanded upon in year 13, with students undertaking in-depth research into their chosen area of study. By the end of the course, students will have built a substantial portfolio of mounted images. The work of artists is used as a springboard for creativity; students are encouraged to visit local and national exhibitions, finding out about the role of the artist in society. The art department also </p><p>runs residential field trips to Cornwall, Suffolk and Rye. By the end of the course all students will have a substantial body of practical work, suitable for application to art foundation or degree courses. Students are guided through their applications for further study, whether in art &amp; design or in other subjects. </p><p>Biology AS Level Entry guidance: grade B in B2 Additional Science and grade 5 in Maths </p><p> Why study biology? The work of biologists is vital to us all. Choose biology and you could find yourself working towards advancing knowledge, pioneering new discoveries and tackling some of the challenges facing the world we live in. </p><p> Learners will study a variety of topics including: </p><p> Development of practical skills in biology Foundations in biology Exchange and transport Biodiversity, evolution and disease </p><p>What will I study? Module 1: Development of practical skills this module underpins the whole of the course and covers the practical skills that learners should develop throughout. The practical skills in this module are assessed within written examinations. Module 2: Foundations in biology covering concepts required throughout the remaining modules. Modules 3 and 4: AS topics exchange and transport, biodiversity, evolution and disease. </p></li><li><p>Sackville School East Grinstead: Post-16 Prospectus 2017-19 </p><p>7 A levels </p><p>How will I be assessed? </p><p>You will be assessed by external examinations at the end of your AS year. What could it lead to? </p><p>As with the other sciences, AS Biology helps you build up research, problem solving, organisation and analytical skills. These skills readily transfer usefully across all other AS and A levels. To have refined these skills by the time you leave school is important, especially in an ever increasingly competitive working environment. AS Biology is also a great basis on which to build a future interest in lifelong scientific learning. </p><p>Biology A Level </p><p>Entry guidance: grade B in B2 Additional Science and grade 6 in Maths Why study Biology? The work of biologists is vital to us all. Choose biology and you could find yourself advancing knowledge, pioneering new discoveries and tackling some of the challenges facing the world we live </p><p>in. Learners will study a variety of topics including: </p><p> Development of practical skills in biology Foundations in biology Exchange and transport Biodiversity, evolution and disease </p><p> Communication, homeostasis and energy Genetics, evolution and ecosystems </p><p> What will I study? Module 1: Development of practical skills this module </p><p>underpins the whole of the course and covers the practical skills that learners should develop throughout. The practical skills in this module can be assessed </p><p>within written examinations and within the Practical Endorsement. Module 2: Foundations in biology covering concepts required throughout the remaining modules. Modules 3 and 4: AS topics exchange and transport, biodiversity, evolution and disease. Modules 5 and 6: A level topics communication, homeostasis and energy; genetics, evolution and ecosystems. How will I be assessed? </p><p>You will be assessed by external examinations at the end of your second year. In addition, there is a non-exam assessment practical endorsement, which evidences the learners development of their practical skills throughout the A level. What can I do after the course? Biology is particularly valued when supporting applications for degree courses in subjects such as </p><p>Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. </p><p> Further study with a biology A level, you can normally study further sciences at university such as Botany, Zoology, Human Biology, Ecology, the Environment, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Zoology, Parasitology, Aquatic Bioscience, Genetics and many more. The higher your grade, the more options are open to you. Universities also often recommend that, </p><p>if you want to study a science at degree level you take a further science such as chemistry or mathematics at A level. Careers The list of career opportunities is varied and endless, including teaching and research, medical and health services, genetic counselling, health education, biochemistry, environmental health, pharmaceutical/medical product sales, marine biology and roles such as laboratory technician or </p><p>energy plant operative. </p></li><li><p>Sackville S...</p></li></ul>
