St Mary’s unveils new courses for next academic year

The independent school in Cambridge has broadened its curriculum by adding new A-level courses, including one in law

Following interest from existing and prospective students, St Mary’s School has announced it will be offering two new A-level courses for the academic year 2022/23.

To further extend its students’ critical thinking and analysis skills, A-level law will be available at St Mary’s Sixth Form from September 2022 onwards. The course will enable students to discover more about the UK legal system and the role law plays in society. Students will also explore the relationship between law, society and the individual.

A-level sociology is also being added to the list of study options at St Mary’s, giving students the opportunity to analyse society around them and discover how and why it works the way it does. The course will delve into how opportunities and behaviour can be shaped as a result of gender, race, social class, age, and value and belief systems.

From September 2022 St Mary’s will also be offering GCSE dance, led by the school’s dance specialist. Students will be able to study performance, choreography and dance appreciation as they broaden and deepen their knowledge and skills across diverse dance styles and approaches.

Head of sixth form, Robin Griffiths, said: “Choosing which subjects to pursue is an exciting but nerve-wracking time for students – whether they are picking their GCSE or A-level options.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer St Mary’s students some new courses that will open up new horizons and further education options to them –inspiring them to push themselves further and reach their full potential.”
