Pathways

The Sixth Form at Weston College offers study pathways for learners alongside their A levels. Pathways provide learners with opportunities to develop different skills and share experiences to enhance their progression onto either higher education or employment. Learners can opt for a particular pathway, but the decision to study 3 or 4 A levels and/or plus a pathway will be based on GCSE scores, career goals and previous experiences. In year one a pathway is compulsory.

The pathways are completed during the first year of the two year Sixth Form study programme.

Debating/ current affairs qualification
Extended project qualification

Personal tutorials

The relationship between you and your tutor is an essential and amazing element of college life. Unlike school, you’ll meet with your tutor once a week for a group session as well as individual 1-to-1s. Whether it’s personal support, academic support, careers guidance and other relevant activities, Tutors are there to support you on numerous levels.

Independent study time

Every student has allocated time for independent study in their timetable. You can spend this time completing work, revising or just chilling out with friends either on or off campus. You’ll have access to silent study areas, our LibraryPlus and subject resource areas during these periods.

Here are some examples of a typical timetable at Sixth Form, depending on what pathway you choose.
