The JAS Sixth Form timetable is different from the Secondary School’s, Sixth Form students only have two timetabled tutor sessions a week, which allows them more time for A-level lessons and independent study. A-level subjects are allocated six hours per week, one double-lesson and four single lessons. The blend of double and single lessons enable teachers and students to explore content in greater depth, are flexible for practical subjects and can facilitate longer in-class assessments.


Referencing the example below, this timetable shows a student’s week when they have selected three A-level subjects (Business, Geography and Maths) and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Each student will be guided on how to use their independent study time effectively, but it is widely accepted that A-levels require 2-3 hours of work to be completed outside of the classroom and our timetable allows this.
