Year 12 (16 years) and Year 13 (17 years)

Key Stage 5 is a small but growing community based on the Secondary site, thus making it easy to ensure that a new student quickly settles into its ethos. The Head of KS5, Mr Newies, oversees all aspects and will provide specialist academic and pastoral support throughout a student’s time there.
 
Students have freedom of access but are encouraged to pursue personal, academic study on site during the school day. There is a Common Room available as a privilege for Senior Students, which is run by the students themselves.
 
A-levels provide students with the opportunity to continue with their academic studies at a higher level. It is important for students to understand that the style of teaching and need for independent learning and research is important as a preparation for Higher Education.

As senior students in the College, they will also be expected to contribute and help organise charity and social activities during the year.
 
Two year Advanced level courses are available in a wide range of subjects, which, when successfully completed can allow students to progress to university as well as being suitable preparation for entry into employment.   Mr Newies will support students through the application procedure for Higher Education through UCAS in the UK, plus applications for University in other European countries and further afield. Sra. Padilla (Directora Técnica) will advise on Spanish university entries and career paths.

Conventionally, students follow courses in four subjects in Year 12 at AS level, and they have an allocation of 4 teacher contact periods per subject per week.  In Year 13 most students select three subjects which are again taught within four teacher contact periods per week.  As explained earlier, further private study and research will be required at this level.  However, there is considerable flexibility in the number of subjects studied, and the strength of small class numbers is that XIC can tailor programmes to suit individual needs within our overall KS5 framework.
 
The subjects that we currently offer are Applied ICT, Art & Design, Biology, Chemistry, Economics, English (Language and Literature), Music, French, Geography, German, History, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Physics and Spanish.
