Year 12 & 13 study
Welcome to UTC Heathrow’s Sixth Form
In our Sixth Form, we help students develop independence and freedom, supporting and challenging them to learn in a way that prepares them for the world of work. We offer a varied STEM focused curriculum that allows students to combine A levels with BTECs in a small learning environment where they are really known by their teachers.
Our Sixth Formers enjoy a hybrid learning approach, a brand new basketball court and pastoral support tailored just for them, encouraging them to grow and develop into young adults, ready for the next step.
But that’s not all. Unique to UTC Heathrow’s Sixth Form is:

GENUINE PREPARATION FOR WORK
Industry standard equipment and a curriculum carefully designed with key employers to make learning as relevant and transferable to the world of work as possible
What can you actually study here?
Our Sixth form curriculum, like the Year 10 and Year 11 curriculum, is very focused on our specialisms of digital and engineering, and the other STEM subjects. In our Sixth Form, you pick one of three routes of study; the technical route, the A Level route or a hybrid route.
- In the technical route, you will pick between the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Engineering or the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Digital. Both of these are equivalent to 3 A Levels.
- In the A level route you can choose 3 A Levels from the available subjects we offer as shown below.
- In the hybrid route you can chose either 2 A Levels alongside a Level 3 Extended Certificate in either Engineering or IT, or 1 A Level alongside a Level 3 diploma BTEC in either Engineering or IT.
All our courses require a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 4 or above including at least a grade 5 in maths. To study at A Level, a grade 6 or above is needed in the chosen subject.
