Sixth Form Curriculum

Joining the South Bank University Academy Sixth Form will provide you with a unique and exciting opportunity.  It is a fundamental belief that at South Bank University Academy students not only flourish academically, they also develop as young people.

We offer a bespoke curriculum and strong teaching, combined with state-of-the-art facilities to help you maximise your learning and progress. There will be considerable opportunities to develop your leadership skills in tandem with a greater sense of responsibility, and to prepare as a young adult for the next stage of your education. 

We are also keen that students combine academic and vocational studies and participate in enrichment activities wherever possible which enables students to develop their wider-self, often through taught lessons, but also via independent studies.

All students will typically select either three A Level courses or a combination of A Levels and Level 3 BTEC qualifications from the start of Year 12.

Please view the prospectus for further information on all our pathways and courses.

This is a fantastic careers platform which directs students to educational opportunities, collating all available information about uni courses and apprenticeships into one accessible platform. Students are encouraged to use this early on to search for opportunities and log the progress they are making towards applications.

The Visionaries

At the start of Year 12, our students participate in a collective journey supporting their transition into Sixth Form and into young adulthood, beyond the academic curriculum, in partnership with the Visionaries. Find out more here.


We work with Circl to provide opportunities for our sixth formers to develop soft skills, providing a platform for them to meet leader in industry.

We arrange sessions our students to visit their offices and meet those leaders. Students get the opportunity to apply and be mentored by some of the speakers, an amazing opportunity that will benefit their future progression into the working world.
