Curriculum & Options
At Bablake the majority of our studenst take three A Levels, with a small number choosing to study a fourth.
Students choose subjects based on their interests, aptitudes and aspirations, and will be given ample guidance. You can be assured that a well-chosen combination of subjects will result in an inspiring and fulfilling experience which will enable students to thrive academically and proceed confidently into the world of higher education or work.
Some students will have a definite view regarding the direction in which their academic career will take them after Bablake. Others, understandably, will wish to keep their options open. Any student unsure as to the suitability of a combination of subjects should seek guidance from the Assistant Head (Curriculum), Mr M W Spencer, the Head of Sixth Form, Mrs A J Tumber or the Careers Department.
As well as the opportunity to study the Academic Core of A Levels, students will enjoy the benefits of a broad and balanced ‘Bablake Advantage’ programme. This will enhance their intellectual capabilities and enable them to develop their interests and enthusiasms beyond their A Level studies, all under the guidance of experienced and specialist staff.
