The Sixth Form at Malton

Pathways Through Sixth Form

The most important measure of any sixth form is the proportion of its students that move onto their chosen next career step.  This is our prime focus at Malton.  We recognize that our young people are on a journey from GCSE study to moving out into the adult world in just two short years.  Our task is to equip them with a firm foundation for future success.  One way we do this is through our Pathways programme.

Students can move between pathways where appropriate as plans change and develop over their time with us but we expect all students to meet the requirements of at least one of our Pathways, confident that all the support we offer is available to all of our students, regardless of their chosen pathway.

EARLY ENTRY

Designed to support students who are aspiring to academic further education and those who may need to submit early UCAS applications for institutions such as Oxford and Cambridge or for courses such as Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry etc.  This pathway will support students to ensure they meet the requirements of these applications including qualifications and UCAS points as well as being fully prepared for entrance exams and interviews.

Students on this pathway will be expected to complete the following:

  • EBacc at GCSE
  • Select at least two facilitating subjects as part of their main course of study (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History, Maths, French or English)
  • Complete a short volunteer or shadowing placement in their possible field of study.
  • Make a 4th subject choice that could be taken to AS or where appropriate completed in full, or complete an EPQ.

Staff Lead: Mrs Holden, Head of Year 13

ENHANCED

Designed for students to create a strong and diverse application that can be used for a variety of post 18 pathways.  Students will be supported to complete additional qualifications and achievements that would sit alongside their main course of study to result in both strong UCAS application and CVs.

Students on this pathway will be expected to complete the following:

3 A level equivalent course

One of the following:

  • Core Maths or Further Maths
  • EPQ
  • Grade 5 or higher music grades

HIGHER VOCATIONAL

Designed to support students who are aspiring to higher degree apprenticeships, vocational degrees and employment.  This pathway will offer increased flexibility to encourage the work experience and volunteering placements that are often required by higher educational vocational courses.  Students will also be offered support for CV writing and interviews alongside possible UCAS applications.

Students on this pathway will be expected to complete the following:

  • 3 A level equivalent courses.
  • Complete a minimum of 2 hours per fortnight of work experience or volunteering throughout Year 12, agreed by the end of the first half-term.
