Arden offers a very broad Level 3 curriculum which is reviewed every year in order to ensure we meet the needs of our community.  Students are enrolled onto three A Level courses (four for students with an average Grade 8 or higher) or vocational subjects of equivalent size.

When students apply to Arden we will offer each individual student an interview where will discuss future career options and help students choose the correct subjects to support this choice.

Arden Reading Programme

At Arden Sixth Form we want to help you read your way to a bright, successful future. Subject staff provide advice on specific reading lists as well as a list of books recommended by our librarian. We include texts that many universities will expect you to have read, if you want to pursue that subject into higher education, and of course, texts that will support you through your studies here. If you have read any great texts, relevant to a particular subject and would recommend them to others, we’d love to have your suggestions too!
