RMGS has a large and vibrant 6th Form with over 300 students. The majority of Year 11 students elect to stay on in our 6th Form and each year approximately 30 new students join the Sixth Form, some of them from overseas.
Examination success is important to RMGS, but students and staff know that the development of positive character traits and soft skills is equally as important. At the heart of the RMGS curriculum are six core values:
- Intellectual Curiosity
A Level Subjects
Despite significant funding cuts to 6th Form budgets, we offer an exceptionally wide range of A Levels including Psychology, Business Studies, Drama and Theatre Studies, Music, Music Technology, Design Technology and Film Studies, as well as more traditional subjects. Students are given a free choice of subjects, with plenty of guidance from careers and subject staff. Almost any combination of subjects is possible. All students will opt to study three A Levels (with the most able being permitted to take four); in Year 13 they might add an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) to their programme of study.
