The next steps...
A-Levels (Advanced Level qualifications) are UK subject-based qualifications for students aged 16 and above. They are studied over the course of two years and lead to qualifications recognised for entrance to higher education institutions in both the UK and worldwide.
Most higher education institutions require a minimum of three subjects and will recognise A-Levels as a suitable entry qualification.
BTECs are high-quality, career-focused qualifications grounded in the real world of work. This means BTEC learners develop and apply the knowledge, skills and behaviours that employers and universities are looking for. A BTEC level 3 qualification is equivalent to one A-Level.
Both A-Level and BTEC qualifications can open educational doors around the world and after completing their courses we expect the majority of our Sixth Form students to proceed to higher education.
The Sixth Form provides students with a true sense of belonging and support in developing as young adults ready for life beyond school. We aim to provide every student with wide ranging opportunities to develop into confident, responsible and aspirational young people, ready to make a positive contribution to society.
We encourage students to be independent, whilst also ensuring there is support and structure in place to encourage them to take control of their learning and help prepare them for that next step into higher education. Students have access to a wealth of information and can rely on the experience of staff who have been working in the careers field for many years.
Examinations and University entries
We expect most of our Sixth Form students to successfully go on to study at Universities across Europe, US, Canada, Middle East and other countries around the world.
Oryx School is looking to continue working on gaining outstanding academic success as we celebrated the superb results achieved by our students in their recent 2021 AS Level exams.
We believe in our students and have encouraged them to apply to top Universities around the world including Oxford, Harvard, University of Toronto, University College London (UCL), Warwick University, UK, Cornell University, Johns Hopkins University, King's College and Imperial University, UK. Our students are looking to move into their chosen careers such as Medicine, Engineering, Politics, Bio Medical Sciences, Industrial Design and Computer Science.
