Sixth Form students at Gordonstoun follow the English examination system in offering the A Level syllabus.
The majority of students are expected to choose three A Level subjects in Year 12. If Further Maths is taken it will be taken as a fourth subject. Those students who have excellent GCSE grades and who aspire to a top Russell Group university place might also take an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) as a fourth option. Most non-English speaking students take the IELTS qualification in English as well as their native language at A Level.
We offer a range of subjects to choose from and we are continually looking to develop new opportunities and courses for our students.
In addition to academic subjects, students attend a weekly lecture and International and Spiritual Citizenship lessons where they explore what they believe and their role as an international citizen.
We can also:
- help students prepare for university entrance examinations; and
- provide further options for students whose first language is not English.
