Course Offer

At Heathfield, students follow a curriculum that suits their preferred way of working, their ability and their own aspirations. We consider students’ GCSE profiles to ensure that students will be able to make progress and achieve on the courses that they have selected.

For students starting with us in September 2017 we will be offering a three A Level course route. This is owing to an increase in subject content and numbers of assessments with the reformed A Level specifications. Students will follow one of three pathways:

A Level Reforms

We are now reaching the end of a period of A Level reforms which have resulted in different curriculum and assessment for all of our subjects. For entry in September 2017 there will be three of our courses that will be delivering new A Level qualifications for the first time. These are Further Mathematics, Mathematics and Product Design. The course information for these subjects was created in September 2017 and is based on draft specifications produced by the exam boards. Course Leaders will update the course information as and when final specifications have been released and decisions have been made about the examination board that the course will follow.
