Key Stage 5


Choosing the right course pathway for you

P6TH SEPTEMBERBeing in partnership with two other local schools, with free mini bus travel, ensures that we are able to offer young people a significant range of Level 3 courses, in both academic and vocational / applied courses. Our programme is designed to support students on all levels of study, or for students to combine a range of Level 3 courses alongside an Extended Project Qualification.  All students are expected to participate in our Welling Ways enrichment programme.  

Specific details about individual course requirements can be found in our Welling School Sixth Form prospectus.  Please use the link to find out more.

We expect students from Welling School who wish to join our 6th Form to have completed a programme of Work Experience in the Summer term after the GCSE exams. Additional information and support can be obtained from Mrs P Cameron; cameronp@wellingschool-tkat.org
