Key Stage 5 Curriculum
At the end of Key Stage 4 the majority of our students stay on to continue their studies in our Aspirations Sixth Form Centre.
We offer a wide range of courses that include traditional A Levels as well as BTEC qualifications. There is a wealth of extra-curricular activities including work or university placement opportunities through our strong links with businesses and universities that students are encouraged to take advantage of. This includes our partnership with BCU (BCU Forward | Birmingham City University), offering the BCU Forward programme to our Post 16 students, and also the Access Project (Schools - The Access Project).
We offer the sensitive support of an academy combined with the independence of a college. The induction programme will help to make Hamstead Hall a welcoming Sixth Form for the students and prepare them for life in the Sixth Form. The success of the Sixth Form Centre is due to the hard work and high aspirations of students and staff. There is a fully integrated information, advice and guidance process that supports students to achieve in their subjects, develop personally and make the right choices for life beyond the Sixth Form. All students will have a personal tutor throughout their time in the Sixth Form offering personalised support and guidance, with the majority of our students securing their first-choice university places .
