At The Abbey we offer both GCE A-levels and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme in our Sixth Form.
Students taking A-levels usually take three subjects at A-level at the end of their Upper Sixth year (Year 13), in line with the traditional academic two-year linear model.
Students taking the IB Diploma take six subjects, three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level, along with the core elements of Theory of Knowledge, the Extended Essay, and Creativity, Activity and Service. All IB subjects are examined and certificated at the end of the Upper Sixth year.
Students will typically take nine, ten or occasionally eleven GCSE subjects.
