A Levels

Our sixth form, known as ED6, offers a range of A Levels, carefully chosen to reflect the qualifications which leading universities are looking for when they recruit their undergraduates.

And we are delighted to have achieved a 100% A Level pass rate in 2016 & 2017.

Five Hours Teaching Time

We are committed to providing you with high quality, challenging teaching and outstanding support so that you achieve your potential and realise your goals.

At ED6 we are proud to offer our students a full five hours, per subject, per week classroom teaching time – whist many other sixth forms are reducing their teaching hour down to four and a half or even four hours in some cases. Quite a difference over the course of a year.

Small Class Sizes

The classes at ED6 are small, this allows for a more personalised approach to teaching and the opportunity to discuss topics in more depth with the lecturers; thus it often seems more like a university tutorial where students can challenge and develop our own ideas.
