Courses in Sixth Form

Please see below for details of the courses we offer at A-level.  All courses are offered subject to sufficient demand and may be withdrawn in the event of insufficient student numbers.

end of guesting arrangements

Previously we have worked in partnership with other local schools to allow students to 'guest' at another school for one of their subjects. Unfortunately this arrangement has ended. The nature of change in education and funding both in the national and local contexts has meant that, despite the best efforts of senior leaders and sixth form teams within the South West Learning Partnership, continued guesting will not be possible from September 2018 entry onwards. We at Silverdale School strongly value close collaboration with other providers and schools and continue to work in order to build future partnerships and inter-school cooperation. If the guesting situation changes in the near future we will provide an update via this website.
