A-Level subjects and academic enrichment

We offer a wide range of 35 A-Level subjects and a comprehensive academic enrichment programme to stretch our students beyond the standard curriculum.


At d’Overbroeck’s we offer an unusually broad range of 35 A-Level subjects, giving students the flexibility to choose the combination of subjects that best fits their strengths, interests and future aspirations. The subjects that we offer are listed below.

Unlike most schools, we don’t set fixed option blocks. This means you can study whatever subjects you want in any combination. Our timetable structure is designed to offer an exceptional degree of flexibility and can usually accommodate the majority of the subject combinations we are asked for each year.

We encourage you to start by thinking broadly, even if you have quite set ideas on what you want to do, and to research thoroughly. Getting your subject choice right is crucial to academic success: we take it very seriously indeed, and encourage you to do the same.

Latest A-Level results

In 2021, 67% of our A-Level entries were awarded A*-A. We’ve also been recognised as the top school in Oxfordshire for progress at A-Level since 2018 and appear in the top 1% of schools in England. This means that our Sixth Form students make better progress with us than if they had studied elsewhere.

Academic enrichment

At d’Overbroeck’s, we like to go above and beyond in everything we do; but most importantly when it comes to the education we offer in our Sixth Form. We believe in equipping all our students with the skills, ideas and attitudes required to succeed in life. That’s why we’re proud to be able to offer a comprehensive set of opportunities to help our students be the very best they can be and achieve their academic ambitions.

Our Sixth Form academic enrichment options include the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), the Think programme and wider learning opportunities, such as competitions, challenges, conferences, lectures, themed learning days and more.
