Sir William Perkins's School Sixth Form Prospectus - Other - Page 14
Each Sixth Form student benefits from their own bespoke programme of
study; designed to enable them to achieve success. Small tutor groups
and highly experienced tutors lead to excellent academic results - in
2019 89% of our student's A level grades were A*-B, and 91% of students
accepted a place at their first-choice institution.
Our Director of Academic Ambition supports Oxbridge candidates in
making successful Oxbridge Applications built on four core pillars:
exam success; super-curricular commitment; strong performance in
Admissions Tests; and an excellent interview. Our small Sixth Form,
excellent academic standards, bespoke subject enrichment and
provision of extra tuition for the most able, provides SWPS students
with the skills and confidence needed to shine and achieve success.
MEDICINE, DENTISTRY & VETERINARY SCIENCE (MDV)
Entry to any medical degree is challenging, and students must
demonstrate an outstanding academic profile as well as first-rate
communication and problem-solving skills. At SWPS we have an
exceptional programme of support to enable our MDV students to
secure their places. This includes membership of our MDV Society;
dedicated application tutoring; admissions test and interview prep.
EXTENDED PROJECT QUALIFICATION (EPQ)
This qualification provides students with an exciting opportunity to
develop their project management skills. Students will build transferable
skills including time-management, problem-solving, decision-making,
planning and record-keeping; presentation skills, research and more.
Universities may make students with a good EPQ grade a lower offer.
The SWPS Diploma is a competency based, internal qualification
designed in collaboration with major recruiters and the University of
Birmingham to help SWPS students develop the skills that universities
and employers are looking for.
The SWPS MBA was introduced in September 2019 and requires
students to complete three enterprise tasks over a year, this includes
entry to the Peter Jones Enterprise competition, our certified MBA
programme is an invaluable experience for all those who participate.
