Sixth Form (Years 12 and 13)

We offer a broad range of traditional A-level courses. With the introduction of new A Level courses most of our students now follow three A-level options with some studying four. Students also have the opportunity to study General Studies or Further Maths. 

Students enrolled at KNBS will study most of their subjects here, but we have a reciprocal arrangement with Kings Norton Girls’ School which allows students to study particular options at the other school. 

This year we have increased the number of taught lessons per option to 10 for Year 12 and Year 13 students.

For Year 13 students our 6th Form PSHE programme covers selecting the right career, job and university applications, CVs and job interviews, personal finance and living away from home. In Year 12, our enrichment programme covers Finance, First Aid, Cookery and Outdoor Pursuits.
