Courses and Application
A diverse curriculum tailored to individual student needs.
The Academy offers a variety of academic and vocational courses, predominantly Level 3. You can choose to study A Levels, BTECs or a combination of these qualifications which demonstrate the breadth of skills that are increasingly required by the world of work and higher education.
At TBOWA 6th Form you will study 3 A Levels (or equivalent) coupled with our comprehensive pastoral support package. It may be possible for a student to complete an additional A Level in a chosen subject.
Vocational Level 3 courses include the BTEC Extended Certificate (equivalent to 1 A Level), BTEC National Diploma (equivalent to 2 A Levels) and the BTEC Extended Diploma (equivalent to 3 A Levels). Typically vocational qualifications are more coursework based and take up more than one Option Block if they are a double or triple award.
For all advanced level (Level 3) courses such as GCE A levels and BTEC Level 3, the entry requirement will be 5 GCSEs at grade 4 or above (including Maths and English). For most subjects a GCSE grade 9—6 is required in the chosen or related subject or a merit at a BTEC Level 2. Individual courses may have additional specific entry criteria. Please see individual courses for more information.
