Sixth Form Academy

For students who have excelled at GCSE

A key feature of our A-Level provision is our Sixth Form Academy. Students with predominantly A* – B grades at GCSE, including English, Maths and Science can join the Academy which aims to get the best out of students with high achievement at GCSE.
Students who join the Academy will be encouraged to undertake additional qualifications such as the Extended Project, an additional AS-Level qualification. With support from the Sixth Form Academy Director, students will be able to participate in inter-college debates, quizzes and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. Students will also be mentored to complete applications to the best universities in the country, including Oxbridge and the Russell Group. Academy members can also represent the college on the Student Union and as a College Ambassador.

Extended Project Qualification

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is a qualification students can study alongside their learning programme and develop a student’s ability to research and develop their ideas at a high academic level. The EPQ requires students to independently plan, complete and reflect upon a 5,000 word dissertation, or equivalent research project, with support from the College’s EPQ Coordinator. The qualification is highly sought after by universities and employers and provides students with an excellent opportunity to undertake an alternative learning experience.

I chose St Vincent College because I was attracted to its ethos of independent learning and self-reliance. All of my teachers have been experts in their fields and have delivered the course content brilliantly. As a successful Cambridge applicant I feel that the college has been excellent in getting students to their deserved situation whether that’s university or employment.
