We offer a full range of A Levels, including Art, Business, Sciences, Classics, English, Drama, Psychology, Mathematics, Geography, History, Modern Languages, Religious Studies and Product Design.

At The Mount School students can study three or four linear A Level subjects. We have a flexible approach and there are many different A Level combinations a girl can choose. Pupils are also able to enter for the Extended Project Qualification.

Choosing A Levels

At The Mount, careers information, education and guidance is designed to provide all Mount girls with a planned course of activities to help them make confident choices and transitions to further education and future employment.  When choosing what to study at A-Level we always recommend that students start by thinking about the subjects they enjoy, are good at and will contribute to their career aspirations. Wendy Thompson, Head of Sixth Form and Careers is happy to talk to any girls currently in school or joining us for the Sixth Form regarding their A Level choices.

Extended Project Qualification

At The Mount Sixth Form students are able to study for an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) through which they are able to extend their abilities beyond A Level and prepare for university or a future career.  The EPQ is a stand alone qualification and is well regarded by universities and can strengthen a UCAS application demonstrating a student’s deeper understanding of their personal research topic.

The outcome of the project can be an in-depth word essay or a physical artefact such as a performance, a book, a film, a piece of artwork or a recorded piece of music. The flexibility and choice within the EPQ means students are engaged and motivated throughout, gaining valuable research and project management skills along the way.
