    John Hewitt

    Head of Sixth Form

Sixth formers have a free choice of A levels, choosing three or four subjects.

Sixth Form candidates have free choice to choose three to four subjects for A Level. They are encouraged to indicate their preferred subjects at the time of application and are welcome to discuss their choices with POWIIS staff. The timetable is written to accommodate students’ individual choices. For some, specialisation will have great appeal whilst others will prefer to combine a mixture of types of subjects in order to preserve breadth. We do our best to provide each individual’s subject and combination choice.

All sixth formers also follow a general course covering university applications, preparation for independent living and personal, social and health education (PSHE). In year 12 students can also commit to a regular community service activity. The completeness of a POWIIS sixth form education will come from continued participation in the range of sporting,
cultural, social and intellectual activities on offer.
