Curriculum & A Level Options

Our A-level Options Evening will start at 5:00pm on Wednesday, 14th March 2018.

Any Year 11 pupils are welcome to apply to St Clare’s Sixth Form and we would encourage parents to book an appointment to meet the Headmaster, Mr Antwis, and Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Parker, 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.

For September 2018 pupils have 4 AS subject choices:

  • Art
  • Biology
  • Business
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science
  • English Literature
  • French
  • Geography

The option boxes will be finalised on  the basis of which subjects students wished to take.  Please note that subjects will only run dependent on numbers. Please also note that there may be combinations of subjects that cannot be taken together.
