Our Curriculum

The Harris City Academy Crystal Palace Sixth Form curriculum provides an educational offer for students who have a breadth of subject interests. It is designed for students who will thrive in an educational environment where the rigours and demands of the different subjects are embraced and taught in a supportive manner without compromising the academic challenges of Sixth Form study.

Whilst the majority of subjects on offer are A Level qualifications, some subjects follow an Applied General or Technical Level route, in order to support students who have specific vocational paths in mind or who have a preferred learning style different to that required for the A Level qualifications.

Whereas the A Levels are assessed predominately through external examinations, the Applied General and Technical Levels will have a greater percentage of coursework involved. A student can choose to follow either route or a combination of both. Whichever pathway a student follows, the aim is to build upon the foundation knowledge and skills gained throughout their KS3 and KS4 study.

At the point of enrolment, students are guided in their course choices so that they follow a cohesive and coherent programme of study where the content and skills of the individual subjects complement each other, as well as furnishing students with a depth of cultural, social and intellectual ideas.

All courses are taught by subject specialists who demonstrate and model the proficiency and scholarship needed to be successful students of their chosen discipline. As well as being authorities in their particular subject, Sixth Form teachers are expected to be exponents of excellent pedagogy and classroom practice so that the classroom becomes a place where students are fully engaged and participate in a dialogical education informed by criticism, reflection and analytical reasoning.
