Icon for Townley Grammar's Key Stage 5 - ScholarSixth Form Curriculum

The final stage of the curriculum journey (see Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 (GCSEs) and Key Stage 5 A Levels) where the student has mastery of knowledge with reasoning and the use of rhetoric to enter the post-secondary school world with a sense of purpose and leadership.

We truly believe that A Levels allow students to specialise in areas of interest and that the depth of study is key for success at university. Townley’s curriculum offers you a chance to specialise in three or four subjects whilst having the opportunity to study bespoke electives that enhance your education. This is an exciting curriculum that is tailored for Townley.
