Students at Lawnswood will follow one of the following four routes to be agreed with the student on the basis of their GCSE results:
- 3 A-level subjects – these will be assessed at the end of Year 13 through linear examinations and coursework.There will be no external AS exam sat – instead rigorous mock exams will be sat at the end of Year 12 to inform decisions about progression into Year 13.
- 2 BTEC Diplomas or equivalent – these will be assessed throughout the two years through coursework assignments (some of which will be marked internally, some externally) as well as through external examination
- 1 BTEC Diploma + 1 BTEC Extended Certificate or equivalent + GCSE resit: Students on the UFCA Scholars programme who are not pursuing A-levels, or other students who require a resit in English or Maths GCSE will automatically and meet the other entry criteria will pursue this pathway.
- A mixture of A-levels and BTECs – to add up to a total of three Level 3 qualifications.
We offer the following courses – in partnership with Ralph Thoresby School.
