Students in the TBS Sixth Form have amazing opportunities and privileges that set them apart from the rest of the school. In their academics we want TBS students to be curious, independent and motivated to gain deep understanding of the subjects they choose.
Students follow the Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel A level courses. These courses are recognised worldwide as college entry courses used to identify students suitable for university study. TBS Sixth Formers can choose up to 5 AS levels including Mathematics, English literature, physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, psychology, economics, history, geography, French, art, design & technology, physical education, music, and travel & tourism. Thinking skills can be taken as an additional AS level. In the final year of school students narrow their choices down to 3 or 4 subjects to complete the full A level. There is free choice, allowing students to create the academic programme that best suits them.
At all levels, all of our subjects and courses are taught by highly qualified subject specialists.
In addition to their A level programme, all Sixth Formers also have compulsory Physical Education and PSHE (personal, social & health education) classes.
All students in the Sixth Form also participate in school’s unique Chautara Project. This is an ongoing development project that works with remote primary schools in rural Nepal. The project is entirely student funded and led. Students are matched with a school and visit a total of 3 times, including two week long residential assignments. They work on initiatives such as fitting solar panels, equipping classrooms and libraries, medical checks as well as curriculum and enrichment activities.
All students can also opt to be involved in the “WEVS” programme. This is protected time for students to undertake work experience or do voluntary service. In addition, students are encouraged to take on leadership roles including leading one of our 4 houses, being a Prefect or Head Boy / Girl.
Our key aim in the Sixth Form is to ready our students for life beyond school. This not only requires developing study skills and achieving academic results, but also gaining independence and leadership skills that will help them reach their aspirations beyond TBS.
