Sixth Form Pathways

Sixth Form Qualifications 

All our students have a personalised pathway to achieve the best qualifications possible. Depending on student’s ability, they can start at any level, jump levels or resit exams to try and achieve higher grades.  

Functional Skills: 

Functional Skills are qualifications that equip learners with the practical skills needed to live, learn and work successfully. 


GCSE’s are the benchmark qualifications students can work towards to gain entry into further education. Our students are supported to the best of their ability and encouraged to achieve GCSE’s.  

Other qualifications: 

We have a range of other nationally recognised qualifications that may be judged as equivalent to the above qualifications or recognised by industry and colleges. We have a vast variety of vocational subjects including but not limited to Construction, Motor Vehicle, Catering, Art, Land Based Studies, Sports and Duke of Edinburgh Award. Students can be supported in A-Level qualifications at Knowle DGE or we will support the student to find a suitable provision to complete A-Levels.
