British International Sixth Form College

In our international Sixth Form college students select between three and four Advanced Level subjects in which to specialise. We offer a range of the ´core´ subjects, as well as other popular subjects which support a wide range of interests and courses for more advanced study.

Our international Sixth Form college is an authorised centre for both the Cambridge International (CIE) and the Edexcel examination boards, and we offer courses from both organisations. The qualifications from these examination boards are recognized and accepted by universities and employers from around the world, and earn PAU points to support students´ applications to Spanish universities. Many of our students will also study two Fase específica subjects in Spanish.

To embark on these courses, students should have passed five GCSE subjects (A*-C) with at least grade B in the subjects wanting to be studied at A-Level. In exceptional circumstances the Head of Secondary may allow students to continue their studies into Sixth Form college without achieving this hurdle so long as motivation can be guaranteed. Such an arrangement would be reviewed termly. The two-year Sixth Form programme comprises highly challenging specialisation in the subjects which are studied, along with support for students in developing independence in the students´ thoughts, actions and levels of responsibility.

As well as progressing towards academic success to support their university applications, students will engage in activities and programmes which focus on developing their personal profile of skills and experience. This enrichment enables genuine engagement with aspects of the school community through which students develop teamwork, leadership, problem-solving and communication as well as other skills which are sought by universities and employers. Whilst students will enjoy less time in class, they will be expected to use their time in a number of ways:

• Research and read widely around their subjects, form opinions and critically evaluate work, learn the subject material thoroughly and apply their learning,

• Contribute to the school community, in helping organize and run events and activities, both as leaders and in the supporting organisation.

• Take the lead in running clubs and hosting assemblies.

• Support students in younger year groups with their organizational skills and personal planning.

• Prepare for University and employment applications through research, group activities, and the develop their personal profile and records.

As in all schools, to enable the options programme to work, subjects are grouped into blocks. Only one subject per block can be chosen. The blocks have been carefully worked out so that they not only meet all the combinations required by universities, but also allow all popular combinations of choices. We have also been careful to ensure maximum flexibility of choice. Each subject is taught for five periods per week. If there is insufficient demand, a subject may be withdrawn.

Students are also entered for Cambridge English Language exams.

FCE (First Certificate in English)

CAE (Certificate in Advanced English)

CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English)
