Sunmarke’s Sixth Form is imbued with the Positive Education approach, our dynamic and innovative Sixth Form curriculum is designed to meet the needs, talents and interest of our students, making them future-ready. Through our different pathways, we encourage students to ask questions about the world around them and think from multiple perspectives.
We are unique in offering A-Levels, BTECs and being an IB World School we also offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and the International Baccalaureate Careers-Related Programme. Whether students choose the A-Levels, BTEC, International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme or International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme, we inspire purpose and drive passion.
Here at Sunmarke we care about the journey that students go on and the skills they develop along the way. Our students are not defined by grades, they are a collection of skills and hobbies that shows their passion, and we want them to strive to be better learners to best prepare them for the path they choose after they graduate. Students will develop these skills through sessions run in form time on developing as a learner and preparing for higher education. While attending sessions for the latter, students will be exposed to resources that will help them explore their passions through reading, videos and courses outside of the curriculum that are now available online at the click of a button.
Outside of the form room is where you will differ in terms of skills developed. The International Baccalaureate Programmes places more of an emphasis in developing a variety of skills due to the diverse subjects students have to take whereas A-Levels allow students to delve deeper into a smaller selection of subjects. Different still are BTEC qualifications which have no exams and will, therefore, develop your investigation and research skills as you look to answer your briefs.
Whether students choose the A-Levels, BTEC, International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme or International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme, we inspire purpose and drive passion.
