Why Choose Our Sixth Form School in Berkshire, Wokingham?

In our Sixth Form College in Berkshire, UK, students receive excellent guidance and support in year-round one-to-one tutor meetings, as they navigate their A-levels, university and career pathways. This personalised support is a highlight of our Sixth Form at Reddam House.

We offer an innovative assessment programme, which includes regular formal tests (Cycle Tests) integrated into the timetable, preparing students for success in their A-level choices. Our school consistently achieves excellent results in A-level exams, often exceeding baseline targets for most students, who secure acceptance to top universities worldwide.

Sixth Form College Curriculum

Offering a wide range of A-levels and a small number of vocational Cambridge Technicals (CTEC qualifications), our Sixth Form curriculum is tailored to each student. 

Before the first term of Sixth Form starts, Year 12 students have individual meetings with subject leaders and the Head of Sixth Form to discuss their A-level subject options, based on their academic history. They will be encouraged to consider what they enjoyed learning, as well as the subjects they received good results for at GCSE level and what they would like to study at university. 

Guided by our Sixth Form tutors, each student then creates their unique A-level subject pathway, consisting of 3 or 4 A-level courses that they will study throughout the two years of Sixth Form (or for a minimum of a term). These choices will align with their future career aspirations or provide them with a versatile array of choices.

Our Super-Curriculum

Our Sixth Form programme adds great emphasis to super-curricular work in which students research and learn beyond the level set out in the curriculum. This helps students to show universities how interested they are in the subjects relevant to the undergraduate degree they are applying for. All our 6th-form students seek further opportunities to develop their wider knowledge and interests, and give them a competitive advantage with their university applications. 

Our Sixth Form School in Berkshire also offers A2B sessions (similar to PSHE programmes) and two lessons of cycle tests during the week. This helps to monitor students' academic performance in test conditions, and is a practical way to prepare them to excel in their A-level exams.

Sixth Form Subjects

Students are encouraged to study 3 subjects but may choose to start the Sixth Form with 4 if they can't decide between two subjects. Universities make offers based on 3 A-level subjects and therefore only those that can cope with a very high workload should consider taking 4 A-levels (students achieving straight 8/9 grades at GCSE). Subjects should be chosen to complement each other where possible. Please check our Sixth Form Curriculum Prospectus for more information.

Extended Project Qualification

Alongside their A-levels, Sixth Form students can also take the Extended Project Qualification, which is highly regarded by universities due to its independent nature. The AQA Extended Project Qualification offers an academic extension for students and unrivalled opportunities to produce a single piece of work showing evidence of planning, preparation, research and independent working. The EPQ is seen as evidence of a student’s readiness for university. 

An EPQ can take several forms:
• an extended essay
• an artefact, model or construction
• a CD/video/DVD of performances or activities
• an audiotape/multimedia presentation
• a journal of activities or events.

Sixth Form Entry Requirements

Students wishing to enter our Sixth Form are asked to attend an interview. Offers are conditional, depending on each student's final GCSE grades and subject to availability. When you are ready to progress your application, we will ask for a reference from your child's present school. Formal offers are made to successful candidates by the Principal. To accept, we ask that you sign our acceptance form and pay a deposit, which is refundable when your child leaves. Please view our Admission Process steps for more details on Reddam House applications. For information regarding fees, please visit our school fees page.
