Consultation to expand Dixons Sixth Form Academy Read more

Our courses

Our Advanced level courses form the core of a students’ overall study experience at Dixons Sixth Form Academy. This is how they fit into the overall student study programme. Most students take three Advanced level courses and an EPQ, in addition each week students will take part in one lecture lunch experience with their tutor group, and a tutorial session. Each week students are involved in at least one enrichment (chosen from our wide range of choices). At the start of each day in the Sixth Form students are engaged in a short staff-led notice period called check-in.

We offer 40 Advanced level courses, all taught by specialised teaching staff in new purpose-built accommodation. Please click on the subject to go to the course information document.
