Courses

Our Sixth Form curriculum offer is both broad and inclusive. It aims to provide students and parents with a wide choice of well recognised and respected course options which promote progression. By providing several pathways through Key Stage 5, we aim to cater for a wide variety of starting points and career aspirations.

Our Sixth Form curriculum offer thereby fully meets and supports the principles of the 16 to 19 study programmes insofar that it provides a structured and challenging individualised learning programme that supports development and progression. All of our students take one or more academic or applied qualifications that stretch them and link clearly to higher education and employment. Any student who does not already have at least a C grade in GCSE Maths or English is able to work towards these qualifications and meaningful work experience and enrichment enable the development of their personal skills in preparation for higher education and employment. 

In timetabling our Sixth Form subjects, we aim to satisfy the maximum possible number of student choices. If a course combination is not possible at Hatch End High School, we can usually offer it by accessing courses in other parts of the Harrow Sixth Form Collegiate. Whilst we aim to offer on site all of the courses below, some may have to be discontinued if there is insufficient demand or a staffing limitation.

We are also offering Vocational options

BTEC Nationals provide a broad, work-related introduction to a single vocational area subject. BTEC Nationals offer mainly assignment based assessment which benefits some students who may find it difficult to demonstrate their full range of skills in the examination room. BTEC Nationals at Hatch End High School are also supported by one day a week of work experience. These work experience placements can be found by you or alternatively the school will secure an appropriate placement for you.

BTEC Nationals are accepted by most universities for many of their courses and Hatch End High School students who have studied BTEC Nationals in the past have progressed on to the most competitive Russell Group institutions.
