QPCS Sixth Form

Welcome to Queens Park Community School Sixth Form

On this site you will find a comprehensive guide to our sixth form.

We believe that studying at QPCS will provide you with a fantastic academic or vocational education, taught by teachers who are specialists in their subjects and who care deeply about the success of all their students. There are also amazing extra-curricular opportunities, all within a very caring and supportive environment.

As we have become increasingly successful the sixth form has grown, from 180 students three years ago to over 220 this year, with many courses oversubscribed. Although QPCS sixth form is still relatively small we are able to offer an excellent range of subjects; but because we are small we are also able to ensure that each and every one of you are able to make the most of the opportunities on offer.

The curriculum information on this site sets out entry requirements for the courses, outlines of what they involve and suggestions of progression routes. Further details about the individual courses are available from the AQA, Edexcel and OCR websites and from subject staff.

The Enrolment page sets out how to apply to QPCS:

  • QPCS Year 11 students complete a Progression Form in tutor time to indicate their plans for next year. This is your opportunity to indicate the subjects that you want to study, you do not need to complete a separate application form, you can change your mind later.

  • Students applying from other schools will find an application form on this website.

  • A senior member of staff will interview you to discuss your choices in detail.

  • In August, if your results are as expected, you will be signed up to your chosen courses.

 

In the meantime, use these websites to help guide you:
