The Sixth Form at the British College of Gava signifies the start of a new and exciting journey, which takes students from school to university, school to the wider world of work, and school into adulthood. Teachers take much pride in closely supporting all Sixth Formers to holistically develop as good people and who are equipped to face life’s challenges. The school works hard to progressively develop the Sixth Form and continue to foster an enriching community within which all of the students can flourish.
Sixth Form students can expect optimal learning conditions including small class sizes whereby all students receive a high level of individual attention to meet their needs. All tutors and teachers involved in the programme strive to carefully guide students in their pursuit of academic goals and personal ambitions. The aim is to drive both academic and personal development as a vehicle to gradually develop happy and well-rounded students who have multiple choices in life.
British GCE Advanced-Level Courses
Students at the British College of Gavá complete A-Level courses; one of the most respected and useful further education qualifications in the world. On graduating with A-Levels, students have the possibility of progressing to universities all around the world including staying in Spain, moving on to the USA, France, Germany, and of course going to the UK.
A-Level courses are hugely demanding and once the academic year has started, every minute of study time is essential. The emphasis on guided and independent learning increases considerably within all A-Level courses compared to that of GCSEs. A-Level courses require significant reading to cover challenging in-depth and board knowledge contents. Students are encouraged to read widely, including additional books and respectable newspapers, online websites, magazines and more. Additionally, a curious awareness and willingness to follow current affairs is also advisable to all A-Level students to enrich learning further.
Accomplishment at A-Level is highly dependent on effective organisation and dedication, while maintaining a positive growth mindset to work hard. It is equally important, however, to keep a good work-life balance to maintain general wellbeing and health. Sixth Form students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning and to be honest about their academic progress, while seeking support when needed. Ultimately, Sixth Form is a voluntary stage of education and it is the responsibility of Sixth Form students to work hard and make the most of the incredible opportunities available.
