A Level

The Mount Kelly philosophy is that we seek to achieve a balance between a genuine academic rigour for all pupils and an approach to learning which is accessible and appropriate to the interests and abilities of each pupil. Similarly, our aspiration is that pupils should feel that they can choose from a range of subjects to create a curriculum that is tailor-made for them.

Most pupils entering the Sixth Form will be expected to choose three A Level courses. These courses will all be taught over two years, with the examinations at the end of the Upper Sixth. Many pupils opt to take the Extended Project Qualification. Some pupils, particularly those choosing to study Mathematics with Further Mathematics, may take four full A Level courses. All pupils will also take Mount Kelly’s own 'Beyond the Curriculum' course.
