Sixth Form

Introduction

The Sixth Form at BMIS is a thriving, vibrant and active community which provides opportunities for young men and women to excel academically and mature through involvement in our enrichment programmes. While small in number the Students leave our Sixth Form to continue their studies in Higher Education, locally and abroard.

In the Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13), the alternative paths to university offered in BMIS ensure that all students find a sixth form challenge suited to their strengths. Sixth form students can opt for A-levels that allow specialisation in areas of strength related to future careers, or BTEC that enhances skills valued in the workplace, university and life. At BMIS we recognise that every student is an individual with unique requirements and we create individualised study programmes that may combine A-levels and BTEC components to meet these needs.
