16-19 Study Programmes at Tring School

We offer a range of A Levels and BTECs that offer students breadth and depth; these are structured and challenging programmes of study that support development and progression in line with students’ future plans. All provision is delivered face to face with students attending school every day during term time. 

All students will study a minimum of 3 A Levels/BTECs or Applied A Levels or a combination of these qualifications.These count as substantial qualifications. This is agreed by the student and the school and will remain unchanged throughout the year. Exceptions will be made if a student finds they have made the wrong choice and wishes to transfer. Students have 4 weeks to transfer to another programme following enrolment if they wish to. 

Each study programme is full time with a minimum of 580 planned hours. This includes the A Level study programme or equivalent along with extension/development or non qualification activity such as the EPQ, work experience, tutorials, study skills, life skills, and electives that develop students’ broader skills, character, attitudes and confidence.

Through our Life Skills programme, students gain real experience and knowledge of the workplace in order to enhance their employability skills. This includes a programme of work shadowing which gives students the opportunity to develop their career choices and apply their skills in working conditions. Work experience is also gained through a range of work related activity; this includes for example student enterprise activities, social action projects, volunteering as lesson ambassadors. 

Our Life Skills programme also supports students in understanding what healthy, respectful relationships look like and seeks to develop their knowledge, confidence and attitudes around relationships and sex.

If a student has not achieved a GCSE Grade 4 in English and Maths, they will be required to study these subjects at this level as part of their study programme. We also offer Level 3 Maths.  

The 16-19 tuition fund is used to support those students who have not achieved a Grade 6 in English and Maths at age 16 and our disadvantaged students. Students with SEND are given the support they need to access their programmes of study.
