Teaching and Learning

At The RISE International School of Education we offer over 30 A level subjects.

We have a sixth form block with state-of-the-art ICT facilities, a study space, a common room and cafe to provide a marvellous academic environment for our growing number of students. Our students get places at top universities, studying subjects including medicine, economics and art.

Academic excellence is key to students’ success. Our curriculum offer includes a wide range of A levels. The A level subjects reflect our academic and creative school ethos ranging from English, the three sciences and maths through to subjects such as music technology, art and photography, as well as new subjects such as philosophy and economics. All the courses on offer can be viewed in the Sixth Form/A Level section of the website


Our sixth form teachers are passionate about their subjects and use innovative and creative approaches to deliver engaging lessons that challenge our students intellectually, develop lifelong learners and make the most of the school’s excellent facilities. Students are set ambitious targets and then given the support and constructive feedback they need to achieve them.

Our teachers are committed to all students achieving their targets and our systems are geared to support this. We ensure that our teachers are extremely well trained in teaching and assessing the courses they deliver

Excellent resources

The school has over 300 networked computers and a range of high-specification electronic resources. By utilising professional-standard equipment and software we are able to help equip students for the transition into higher education and work.

Our students will work on iPads in order to help them with their studies and for us to be more eco- friendly and use less paper based materials. If you have any questions about our A Level courses don’t hesitate to contact the school using the enquiries email.

Maths/Further Maths block is 10 periods a week allowing students to complete the whole A level in one year then the Further Maths in the second. They must be chosen together and students must have received an A or above at GCSE. This is an example of the kinds of thinking students, parents and their teachers need to think about when the time comes to make A Level choices

It is a requirement for students to re-sit their Maths and English Language GCSE if they achieved a 4 or below in our school.
