Together, the 13 centres in the 6f Partnership offer a broad range of courses for post-16 study. These include:
- A Levels in around 40 different subjects – in school 6th forms or at FE colleges
- International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (IBCP) – at Westminster Academy
- BTEC and other vocational courses – at FE colleges and also in some school 6th forms
Visit centres’ individual websites for more details of the courses they offer to help you decide where you wish to apply.
Some of our centres offer ‘Consortium’ courses which incease your options for study in Westminster.
How does the Consortium work?
For A Level students, if a subject you wish to take is not available at the centre you are applying to it may be possible to take that subject as a Consortium course at another centre.
You would enrol at your ‘home’ school or college and most of your subjects would be taken there, but – if your application for a Consortium course was successful – you would also enrol at a ‘host’ centre and travel there, usually for 3 lessons per week. This option can be very useful for students wishing to take a subject that is not offered by their home centre or is full up, or if they have a subject clash.
Students usually begin studying 4 AS Levels or full A Levels in Year 12 (each centre will have its own policy about this). You would normally choose one subject only from an option block (blocks A-E) – this year’s Consortium options blocks are attached here:
