Implementation at Key Stage 5 (Sixth form)
Our Sixth Form students have a tutorial base at Atrium Studio and full access to a wide range of resources. They can also access South Dartmoor Community College’s own excellent Sixth Form facilities at Place House, the SDCC Library and PSHE assembly programme.
Alongside more traditional A Levels, students also have opportunities to work towards Level 3 qualifications that are relevant to the Built Environment industry.
From September 2018, Atrium’s A-level provision will increase as the first of our Key Stage 4 cohorts make the transition into Key Stage 5.
