We offer a wide range of academic and vocational courses to Sixth Form students. Students may choose a range of subjects at Advanced Subsidiary level (AS) and Advanced Level (A2). Most students will study four subjects at AS level during Year 12 and will normally choose three of these to continue at Advanced Level in Year 13.
All students follow a course offering the Welsh Baccalaureate qualification. Some subjects offered in the Sixth Form are held in our partner schools and institutions.
Sixth Form students are also involved in visits, fund raising for charities, school service e.g. paired reading, sports, young enterprise, debates and work shadowing which includes opportunities for quality work placements including placements in London. Sixth Form students are also responsible for SMILE club (Something to Make It a Little Easier) that offers support and mentoring to younger members of the school community.
We have open access to the Sixth Form although we recommend that students have gained GCSE grades A* to C in at least 5 subjects.
We would like to encourage all Year 11 students and their parents to join our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 14th October at 6pm. You will learn why Llanidloes Sixth Form is one of ‘The Times’ top 10 Sixth Forms in Wales, find out about the range of subjects and vocational options on offer and have a taster of what life is like in Sixth Form from some of our splendid students.
