16-19 Provision


How do we meet the requirements of the 16 – 19 study programme?

All ESFA funded education for 16 to 19 year olds should be delivered as a study programme which combines qualifications and other activities, and which is tailored to each student’s prior attainment and career goals.

At DCHS our sixth form programme consists of a Level 3 programme. The Level 3 programme is composed mostly of academic qualifications and many students study facilitating subjects. There are a few applied/BTEC courses on offer. 

At DCHS sixth form all students who do not hold a grade 4 in maths and/or English are provided with time on their programme to retake these subjects.

Students in our sixth form are expected to take part in a number of activities which provide them with the opportunity to develop a range of “soft skills”.
