Welcome to the curriculum information for Harris Clapham Sixth Form
Harris Clapham offers a wonderful and unique opportunity to students in Lambeth and beyond to come and get a brilliant all-round education.
The academy will offer a Level 3 curriculum package. This will focus on A- level and vocational courses. Students will also benefit from a first-class enrichment and personal social/health curriculum. We will particularly focus on developing students’ leadership skills, including in their local community. Please click on the leadership tab to find out more.
Our A levels will include the ‘facilitating’ subjects that are the most valued by the best universities. Our state-of-the-art facilities will enable every subject to be taught above and beyond the exam board specification. We will offer separate sciences, mathematics and technological subjects. Other subjects will include Government and Politics, Drama and Computing.
Our vocational courses will enable students to study the equivalent of one, two or three A-levels. These courses will fully integrate the world of work into their delivery. Our resources include media, computing and art suites. Students will be able use the latest technologies that are used in industry during their studies.
We have prepared a summary of each subject (please click on each subject within the subject tab). The vocational courses include a variety of optional units - final decisions on these will be made by teachers once they are in post. The subject pages give a flavour, for example of the mandatory units that must be studied alongside the optional units.
From day one, students are preparing for the step up to university education and/or their chosen apprenticeship/work routes. They will work towards challenging academic goals; they will develop the study skills of independent, adult learners; they will be supported in preparing their applications, personal statements and interviews so they are ready to take on the competition!
In addition to their A level and/or vocational courses, there are lessons that allow students to learn completely different things, often outside the box. These are called “Cultural Perspectives”. Students will choose a different perspective each term. There will also be a wide range of enrichment, work experiences and sporting opportunities to ensure a holistic education package is on offer.
We hope you are able to find out more about what life at Harris Clapham Sixth Form will be like through our website. Enjoy!
