The Sixth Form at Rugby School Japan allows pupils to immerse themselves in an advanced study through the A-level curriculum. Recognised by universities around the world, A-level qualifications allow pupils to enjoy the satisfaction of taking control over their chosen subjects and, in the process, begin to mould their futures.
A-level courses are academically demanding. Success requires a willingness to be scholarly and creative, curious and critical, determined and ambitious, to develop ideas independently and collaboratively. Departments strive to push pupils beyond their perceived limits. Those with the interest and ability necessary to apply to the world’s top universities will be supported and encouraged.
A-level courses follow a prescribed curriculum administered by examination boards in England. At Rugby School Japan, we use four examination boards to administer our examinations: Cambridge, AQA, OxfordAQA and Pearson Edexcel. However, while examination results are of vital importance, we structure our courses around learning rather than examinations, and the learning is not always confined to the limits of the syllabus content.
A wealth of societies and enrichment opportunities supplement the formal curriculum in all subjects and is available to all Sixth Form pupils. Academic study at Rugby School Japan happens firmly within the context of the wider school experience. As pupils develop through their lessons, enrichment, careers programme and community action programmes, they will start to understand the place of their academic learning in the real world.
