There are four routes through the International Sixth Form at the Anglo, each of which is designed around the principles of a baccalaureate curriculum. Each route is therefore broad, rigorous, internationally-informed and built around a set of core experiences. Whichever route is chosen sets Anglo students apart in the employment and university market.

A Level Route (A)

In order to study on the A Level route, students must first meet our general matriculation requirement of 5 GCSEs grades 9-5 including a grade 5 or above in English. The majority of the A Levels that we offer require that the students obtains a grade 6, or above, in the subject (or related subject) at GCSE in order to study it at A Level.  For more information,  including subject pages, click on the A Level heading above.

A Level, IB Route (AIB)

In order to study on the AIB route, students must first meet our general matriculation requirement of 5 GCSEs grades 9-5 including a grade 5 or above in English. The majority of the A Levels that we offer require that the student has obtained a grade 6, or above, in the subject at GCSE in order to study it at A Level and a grade 5, or above, for any subject that they wish to study at IB Standard Level.  For more information,  click on the AIB heading above.  Subject pages can be found in either the A Level Section of the IBDP section.

IB Career-related Programme Route (IBCP)

In order to study on the IBCP route, students must first meet our general matriculation requirement of 5 GCSEs grades 9-5 including a grade 5 or above in English. The majority of the A Levels that we offer require that the student has obtained a grade 6, or above, in the subject at GCSE in order to study it at A Level (or grade 5 for Vocational A Level Equivalents) and a grade 5, or above, for any subject that they wish to study at IB Standard Level.  For more information, click on the IBCP heading above.  Subject pages can be found in either the A Level Section of the IBDP section.

IB Diploma Route (IBDP)

In order to study on the IBDP route, students must first meet our general matriculation requirement of 5 GCSEs grades 9-5 including a grade 5 or above in English. We require that the student has obtained a grade 6, or above, at GCSE for any subject that they wish to study at Higher Level and a grade 5, or above, for any subject that they wish to study at Standard Level.

Languages in the Sixth Form

All students study a language at some level in the Sixth Form.

Language study is a formal requirement for the IBD Route (taken at Higher, Standard or Standard ab initio level) but may not be for the A, AIB or IBCP Routes if the language is not studied at a level or IBS level. In this instance students must then study a language at Introductory level.  For more information, including subject pages, click on the Languages in the Sixth Form heading above.

Additional Notes:

  • Students already at the Anglo European will need to have successfully completed the Diplôme du Citoyen. External candidates will have to demonstrate their commitment to global citizenship. These are essential requirements which would ensure acceptance on a suitable Sixth Form course. Where a subject is being studied at Sixth Form level for the first time (for example Philosophy or Economics), a minimum of grade 6 at GCSE is required in a complementary subject for an intended A Level or IB Higher subject and a minimum of grade 5 for a Standard subject. However, one GCSE subject can only be used for 2 complementary Sixth Form courses.
  • In addition to Citizenship/Tutor period, a course in Languages (which may be one of your choices at A level or in addition at introductory level) and completion of a Creativity, Activity and Service course (CAS-75 hours). Combined with 4 A level subjects this represents a broad (baccalaureate) course with a minimum of 540 planned study hours over each year of the two year programme.
  • All students are expected to have achieved the minimum of a Grade 5 in GCSE Mathematics by the time they leave the Sixth Form, therefore those who matriculate without a Grade 5 will need to join the GCSE Mathematics re-sit group. Mathematics courses in the Sixth Form also have additional matriculation requirements. As well as reading the information contained about the various subjects on our website, students should check with their Year 11 Mathematics teacher for further details. External applicants should discuss this at interview.
  • These matriculation requirements are not intended to select the most able students but they are intended to provide a realistic entrance requirement, thereby avoiding the possibility of students starting a Sixth Form programme for which they are not suited. We cannot guarantee a course if students change their minds about which subjects they want to study after GCSE results are published, even if they have matriculated.
  • Students not achieving GCSE Grade 5 in English may still be considered for a place in our Sixth Form after consulting Yr11 teachers about the likelihood of success on chosen courses and the possibility of a re-sit.
