At Wellington College Hangzhou Sixth Form we are proud to offer the highly regarded A Level (Advanced Level) academic programme, which is an English qualification that is recognised across the globe for being excellent preparation for university. Our environment is one that constantly encourages and challenges pupils to excel in their subjects of choice. Our teachers are subject specialists and outstanding classroom practitioners. 
 
They have been hired for their infectious passions for their areas and their ability to scaffold their teaching so all pupils can access, understand and love their subjects too.
 
Pupils are encouraged to pursue their interests both inside and outside of the classroom; from representing the school on the football pitch to playing in our esteemed orchestra, or even creating the next masterpiece in the art studio, there is certainly something for everyone.
 
Life at Wellington College Hangzhou Sixth Form is certainly busy but very engaging and rewarding. Our pupils are challenged and extended to reach their potential. The opportunities are plentiful and eye-opening. The academic support and scope for personal development are second to none. Our pupils will undoubtedly graduate as worldly, well-prepared and independent lifelong learners.

Pre A Level
 
The Pre A Level programme has been designed to offer the best of both worlds: IGCSE qualifications and a solid foundation for A Level studies. Pupils will sit three IGCSEs (English as a Second Language, First Language Chinese and Mathematics) at the end of the academic year. Alongside our learners’ external qualifications, they will also have the option to study A Level foundation courses in Physics, Chemistry, Economics and Art. Each of these courses has been designed to offer students a solid foundation of knowledge, technical vocabulary and practical skills to enable a smooth transition to A Level studies. By offering a broad academic curriculum, we aim to provide the best possible preparation for A Level studies.

Lower and Upper Sixth Form
 
The A Level programme is well known for being excellent university preparation due to its challenging content and rigorous assessments. Pupils will choose three subjects to study over the two years, from the age of 16 to 18. As there are no compulsory subjects, pupils are encouraged to choose their academic passions. With only three subjects to study, learners become specialists in these areas as they cover each in far greater depth than a broader curriculum would allow.

University pathways
 
The world of higher education can be a mystery to high school students, especially when the desired institutions are abroad. The pathway to university is high priority for us, so much so that it is a taught formally from the age of 14. Pupils will learn about different university systems, entry requirements and student life, as well as receiving one-to-one guidance on how to choose a suitable course and step by step support with the application process. The world of higher education can be a mystery to high school students, especially when the desired institutions are abroad.

To help our pupils learn more about universities and careers, we have a bespoke external speakers programme. Past and present university students share their experiences about their academic lives and our pupils are free to ask questions such as “which subjects did you study at A Level?” and “what is the food like at university?”. Pupils are also able to sign up to webinars run by prestigious U.K. university lecturers to gain a taste of higher education.

Our pupils will be fully equipped with the knowledge and skills to not only apply successfully to university, but also thrive once they are there.
