We are very excited to be able to offer the AQA Bacc (the English Baccalaureate from the AQA Examination Board). This gives you the flexibility to continue to study the A levels you want, to be recognised for the enrichment activities already on offer at Farlington and to learn the necessary skills to project manage an independent piece of work – which you will need to be able to do when you reach university. The AQA Bacc will also give you the opportunity of achieving up to 550 UCAS points for your university application.
Why AQA Bacc rather than IB?
The advantage of choosing the AQA Bacc over the International Baccalaureate, is the open choice of A level subjects available. You can choose any A level from any examination board; so if you are aiming for Medicine you can specialise in Science subjects, if Arts are your ‘thing’ you can take a specialised route, or you can keep your options open and choose from a complete range of disciplines. You must complete the Enrichment Programme, which covers three main areas – Work Related Learning, Community Participation and Personal Development. We have a very strong, well established programme which has run extremely successfully for many years, which we know covers this aspect of the AQA Bacc. (We have AQA’s endorsement of our ability to deliver this area.) Sixth Form is about you achieving the best possible A level grades but it is also about making a successful transition from school to university or the workplace. We pride ourselves on sending out into the world students who can make a difference and who will be confident to take on the next challenge.
