A Level courses
'I still use the essay writing techniques I learned at Claremont for all my university work - they were really good.' (undergraduate philosophy student)
'We are delighted with the excellent set of exam results which have enabled her to gain her first choice university place, in an extremely competitive environment.' (parent of an undergraduate biology student)
Academic progress and subject options
At Claremont there is a wide range of subjects available to be studied. Students are advised to make subject choices based on their interests, abilities, and possible future university options. In the vast majority of cases it is possible to offer the subject combinations chosen by the students.
In Lower Sixth, students study either three or four subjects. In Upper Sixth, students study three subjects, which will give them their final A Level grades. The grade gained at AS level in the subject that has not been continued into Upper Sixth still gains UCAS admissions points for university entry.
Every half term students receive an academic review. This gives a detailed picture to them, and their parents, as to how they are progressing. Unsatisfactory work will result in action being taken by the school to promote a more positive work ethos – this might include consultation with parents and the student, involvement of the pastoral staff, removal of flexi time and/or other privileges.
In Lower Sixth there is a parents evening shortly after the first half term which gives an excellent opportunity to assess progress. There is also a parents evening in Upper Sixth. However, parents are also encouraged to contact subject teachers at any time should they have concerns.
