The quality and diversity of the School’s curriculum provides over 50 courses for Sixth Year.
Dedicated and expert teaching staff and small tutorial groups build high academic standards for Post-Higher qualifications. A Levels (accelerated into a single year) and a focus on Advanced Highers provide a depth of knowledge invaluable in Higher Education.
The intellectual challenge of advanced study, new subjects, specialisation and the chance to take Hutchesons’ Independent Research Paper creates a gateway to top universities such as Oxford and Cambridge.
Further academic opportunities include Talking Points our highly regarded S6 lecture series, international travel and access to Sixth Form conferences at Oxbridge college and an annual philosophy conference at Hutchesons’. Pupils also produce a Talking Points Blog discussing their views on the lecture series.
The Young Enterprise Scheme, Mark Scott Leadership for Life programme and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award all encourage resilience and self-reliance, while co-curricular, community, charity and social activities hone life skills and provide a truly memorable and worthwhile experience.
