Curriculum

We offer both A-level and BTEC course options at Giggleswick. For our A-level programme, students take three A-level subjects alongside an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) and our Super-curriculum (academic enrichment). We also offer a BTEC programme for students who prefer a more guided learning experience and ongoing assessment throughout the course.

A levels provide the core academic input for our sixth formers. We offer a range of subjects taught by subject specialists in small groups. A levels generally require a greater degree of independent learning than GCSEs and are more academically demanding. Students take three A Levels alongside our academic enrichment programme.
 
We also offer a selection of BTEC courses, which tend to suit young people who prefer a more guided learning experience and ongoing assessment throughout the course. For pupils considering going on to university they will normally be advised to take a suitable A level alongside their BTEC.
