Malmesbury School offers around 28 subjects at A level.

With the move to A Levels becoming a linear qualification (fully assessed at the end of Year 13), students in the sixth form will normally study 3 A levels in Year 12 and continue three of these onto A level.

Initially students in Year 11 are advised to apply for any combination of the 30 subjects. 

Every effort is made to accommodate these choices and run an appropriate number of teaching groups. Unfortunately it is not always possible to accommodate every choice but the Head of Sixth form is always available to discuss alternative options.

Please check the curriculum documents area (Sixth Form) of the website for further course information.
