A Levels at ED6 Sixth Form


If you're considering moving on to study A Levels after your time at school, there's three good reasons why you should consider ED6 as your place of study: the courses we offer, the staff who will teach you and the first-class learning facilities you'll enjoy during your time here.

They're the ones that are most respected and valued by leading universities. They're the ones that give you the best chance of attending the university of your choice and to get the degree you're looking for.

There's a wide choice of combinations available, so you'll be able to find the perfect match for your talents, interests and ambitions.

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.
