Welcome to Sixth Form

Stimulating, exciting and challenging. Those words best describe the Sixth Form at Ardingly, where we urge individuals not only to excel in the classroom, but on the sports field, the stage and in the choir stalls.

Sixth Formers at Ardingly can study either the International Baccalaureate or A Levels.

International Baccalaureate

Students studying the International Baccalaureate study six subjects alongside the IB Core. All students study English, Mathematics, a science subject and a second language, alongside humanities and arts subjects.

A Levels

The A Level model offers both flexibility and depth to pupils who want the chance to study what they want in more detail.For pupils with a clearly-defined interest and academic focus,  A Levels may provide the most appropriate programme of study and route to university.

IB Core

All pupils, including those doing A Levels, can study the International Baccalaureate Core. This is a programme recognised by UCAS and highly regarded by universities.
