Sixth Form

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.

Documents/Policies

The curriculum has been designed to allow time each week (usually a full day) for DEC Level 3 Certificate students to undertake an extended period of work experience. Over weeks/months, they collaborate with a Built Environment employer on a specific project which then forms part of their DEC coursework and portfolio.
