Key Stage 5: Years 12 & 13

Key Stage 5 (Years 12 and 13) 

At Post-16, students choose from a wide range of Advanced Level and Level 3 BTEC courses, can study the AQA Extended Project Qualification. Trinity’s offer of traditional A levels alongside Level 3 BTEC qualifications offers both a flexible yet challenging curriculum which enables our learners to access high quality higher education and employment after Sixth form.  

Nationally, A Levels remain the most widely recognised British Level 3 qualification; combined with the career-based knowledge and required in BTEC Extended Certificates students have an enviable range of level 3 study options, which ensure there is no limit to the university courses and employment routes that Trinity students can access. 

At Trinity, our study programmes are all designed to be full-time with a minimum of 540 planned hours per academic year. The school offers 19 A level courses, as well as Tech Level L3 courses in Digital Media, and Sports and Applied General L3 courses in Health and Social Care and ICT. Students may follow up to four courses in both year 12 and year 13. In Year 12, all students follow a core programme including PSHE, PE and supervised study. Trinity students are also expected to complete a Level 3 Extended Project alongside service activities which count towards the awarding of the Trinity diploma.
