Curriculum

Below is a full list of sixth form courses available to study at KAA, all of which are A levels. Our expectation is that the majority of students will study four AS Levels in Y12, dropping to three A2 Levels in Y13. In subjects which are taught via our partners Godolphin & Latymer, students will study a two year A-Level and forego the AS – this is something to explore at interview.

Subjects Taught at Kensington Aldridge Academy

The following AS & A-Level courses are available to study at KAA Sixth Form from Sept 2017. This list is provisional and may change slightly.

Subjects Taught at Godolphin & Latymer

The following AS & A Level courses are available to study at our partner school Godolphin & Latymer from Sept 2017. Students will have to travel between KAA and Godolphin for these lessons (just three tube stops – a 20 minute journey which will be built into their timetables). These subjects are only available to female students, as Godolphin is a girls’ school.

How to choose your courses

Choosing the right courses is a complicated issue and we would encourage you to think very carefully about your choices, complete all the necessary research, and consult with parents and teachers well in advance.

Trumpet_NotesEntry Requirements

General entry requirements

6 A*-C grades plus a grade 5 or above in both English (Lit and / or Lang) and Maths, with a B grade or above in the four AS subjects you wish to study (or closest equivalent)

Subject specific requirements

Grade 6 or above in English (Lit and / or Lang) for humanities subjects

Grade 6 or above in Maths for Maths

Grade 8 or above in Maths for Further Maths

Science

Triple award science: A in the science to be studied (e.g. A in chemistry for chemistry AS)

Dual award science: AA

Performing Arts

We acknowledge that excellence in the performing and creative arts is not solely measured by academic results, and that practical experience of performing is also relevant. Accordingly, candidates for Dance, Drama, Music, Art or Product Design who feel they may not fully meet the academic requirements but have extensive practical experience may still apply.

Godolphin & Latymer courses

Whilst all KAA sixth formers benefit greatly from our partnership with Godolphin & Latymer, only a very small number will be able to actually study an A-level there. The option is only open to female students and only in courses where Godolphin have availability once their own students have made their choices. If there is a space, applicants will need to meet the entry criteria for Godolphin, which is seven A*- B grades at GCSE, with an A or above in the subject you wish to study. Applicants will also have to pass an interview at Godolphin.

What is the ‘closest equivalent’ subject?

For less commonly studied subjects, we will look at the following, if the exact course is not being studied at GCSE:

Please get in contact with us if you have any questions about this, or if you believe you have an alternative subject combination which is equally valid.
