Sixth Form

From A levels and enrichment opportunities to further study and careers beyond, Ffynone Sixth Form students excel and enjoy themselves in a challenging, supportive environment.

An independent curriculum

Our students take A Levels, rather than the Welsh Baccalaureate. We believe it best serves our students to achieve qualifications that are immediately recognised by British and international universities. We’re keen to support students in pursuing their interests, passions and talents, and this is reflected in our broad range of subject choices.

  1. Art and design
  2. Biology
  3. Business studies
  4. Chemistry
  5. Classics
  6. Computing
  7. Dance
  8. Drama
  9. Economics
  10. English literature
  11. French
  12. Geography
  13. German
  14. History
  15. ICT
  16. Latin
  17. Mathematics & Further Maths
  18. Music
  19. Physics
  20. Psychology
  21. Spanish

A choice for the future

Ffynone House students gain outstanding results, and the majority are offered their first choice Russell group university places. In 2016, 90% of mathematics and science A Levels were awarded grades A*-B. Overall, 75% of A Levels were A*-B with 55% at A*-A. We provide strong support with UCAS applications, and interview practice with the school’s Senior Leadership Team and external admissions advisors.

  • Most students get their first choice university place

Ffynone House students go on to enjoy success in all walks of life. We invite former Ffynonians to talk about university and their working lives, and we help student organise their university visits. Ffynone House students consistently perform well in mathematics and science, with many going on to study medicine, mathematics, science and engineering.

“The quality of teaching is a particularly strong feature of the school’s work”… “[The] vision is based on shared values, where individuals matter within a culture of high aspirations and a determination to succeed.”
