Pathways at LS6

 

Most internal and external students transition into LS6 with a clear specialism in either Sport or Performing Arts. Students can study vocational BTECs, academic A Levels or even a combination of both – all entirely dependent on their own career pathways.

PATHWAY 1 – Specialism Only

3 A-level equivalent BTEC course in either Performing Arts or Sport

This pathway is suitable for those students who wish to study and train purely for their specialism.

PATHWAY 2- Specialism with A-level(s)

BTEC course in either Performing Arts or Sport + 1 or 2 A-levels

This pathway is suitable for those students who wish to study and train for a dual career.

It may be possible for academically able students to complete the BTEC Extended Diploma and 1 or 2 A-levels meaning a total of 4 or 5 A-levels at the end of the two years at LS6. This is at the discretion of Specialism Leads and Vice Principal.

PATHWAY 3 – Non-Specialism

3 A-levels

This pathway is suitable for those students who wish to study for an academic route.
