The Sixth Form (Years 12 - 13)

St Mark’s is the only school in Harlow to offer students the opportunity to continue their studies beyond the age of 16 in a school-based, Catholic environment.

An extensive range of AS Level courses is provided to maximise student choice; 29 AS Level courses are offered. A2 courses are taken in Year 13 in all major subjects. Applied A Level courses are offered in Business (Double Award), ICT (Single Award) and Health and Social Care.

A well established programme of Vocational Education complements the A/Level courses. BTEC First Certificate is offered in Travel Tourism and Business.

Progression to university and other Higher Education colleges is encouraged with most A Level students achieving this with the help and support of the teaching staff and, in particular, the Head of Sixth Form. Pastoral guidance is given a high priority with students having ready access to personal tutors.
