Speaking about the Sixth Form provision at Rendcomb College, Head of College, Rob Jones, said: “At Rendcomb we offer an unrivalled setting for pupils to grow, to learn and to contribute to all aspects of school life.
“Our leavers’ destinations this year include pupils going on to study Politics, Applied Medical Science, Accounting, Drama and Theatre Studies and Chemistry at universities such as Oxford, Bath, Exeter, Swansea and Durham. We are very proud of what they have achieved as they have all made excellent progress over the last two years, particularly given the changes to the A Level system.
“In addition to subject lessons, we have a Sixth Form enrichment programme that exposes students to a wide range of topics, careers and industries while our leadership programme ensures they have the practical skills needed to thrive in the world after school. We are continually developing our curriculum too with two new subjects being offered this September in addition to the 21 A Level subjects offered currently; Design Technology – Product Design A Level and Travel and Tourism BTEC.”
