Upon entering the Sixth Form students choose 3 A level, 3 L3 BTEC subjects or a combination of both to study in the Year 12 and 13 from a wide range of subjects. Students are taught in smaller classes than in Key Stage 3 and 4. Students with high prior attainment may take an additional A level in Panjabi and /or the EPQ. Students are required to continue with Mathematics and English study if they did not achieve a standard pass in either of these at GCSE.

Please find the statutory guidance Khalsa Secondary Academy will be following for implementing the Relationship and Sex Education programme of study here

The aim of RSE is to give young people the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds, not just intimate relationships. It will enable them to know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend, a good colleague and a successful marriage or other type of relationship.

Parents and the local community can find out more about the curriculum we follow at KSA by emailing Mr J Williams (Deputy Headteacher)  j.williams@khalsasecondaryacademy.com
