Billing Brook School

The 6th Form curriculum


All students will continue to develop their core skills in English, Maths and ICT but through Functional Skills accreditations (Entry Level 1 – Level 1/2) or Life and Living units for those at a pre-entry level. 

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. They 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 accreditations 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).
