Years 12 and 13

Post 16 provision at Winterbourne includes a range of academic and diverse courses to suit every student, with a dedicated ICT provision and Sixth Form Library.

Currently over 30 Level 3 subjects are offered, the majority of which are A Level courses, with some BTECs and Technical courses also available for a more practical approach to learning. All students in Year 12 also study the Core Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Most students now study 3 A Levels + an EPQ throughout Y12 and Y13, but where appropriate a few choose to study 4 A Level Subjects. All students also have a dedicated 1 hour Tutor Period per fortnight, with this time used for UCAS Support, PSHE delivery etc. The Academy is currently developing its ‘wider’ curriculum opportunities, including Work Experience, Mentoring Younger Students Programme etc.

In 2017 the Academy developed a partnership, working between ourselves, the Olympus Academy Trust and the local Concorde Post-16 Partnership. This involves some students joining Concorde Partnership groups for some of their lessons.

The Concorde Partnership experience has been carefully designed to provide all students with a well-balanced education, both inside and outside the classroom, studio or laboratory. By working together we can give students a wide range of courses that will not only cater for personal preferences but also provide choices that will serve students well in the future. We are excited about the new developments for the Academy, ensuring high quality provision for all students and drawing on the many strengths the Concorde Partnership offers.
