Billing Brook School

The 6th Form curriculum

The curriculum for students at the Sixth form is a varied and personalised one, which supports pupils aspirations for the future. For some this may be employment, for others it may be developing independence skills.

The curriculum rationale document outlines the intention behind the curriculum options, as well as the impact we see as a result. 

All students will continue to develop their core skills in English, Maths and ICT  through Functional Skills accreditation (Entry Level 1 – Level 2) or Life and Living units.

They have the opportunity to work towards vocational BTEC courses in Construction, Hair and Beauty, Caring for Children and Work Skills and to gain ‘on the job’ skills by working in or café, shop, horticulture areas and other vocational placements. Students also have access to a range of additional accreditations such as: The Duke of Edinburgh Award, Food Hygiene and First Aid. 

In addition to the external accreditation our students benefit from lessons in Enterprise, Leisure (visiting the gym), travel training, RE and Current Affairs, Food Technology and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education).
