Curriculum & A Level Options

Any current Year 11 pupils are welcome to apply, and we encourage parents of current Year 11 pupils to book an appointment to meet the Headmaster, Mr Antwis, to discuss subject choices. For more information on how to enrol at St Clare’s please contact our Registrar, Holly Fowlkes, on (01656) 789966.

Pupils can discuss their options with subject teachers in school, Mrs Parker, Head of Sixth Form, and Mrs Howe the Careers Teacher at St Clare’s.

St Clare’s follow the Welsh curriculum for A Levels.  We have assurances from Ofqual that this in no way disadvantages our pupils when applying to any UK university. The benefit is more flexibility akin to the legacy English A Levels.
