Curriculum

 

At Hastings Nexus we offer a British curriculum based around a core of A levels, a highly personalised programme that allows students to tailor their studies by choosing subjects that best suit their interests.

 

In addition, students can choose:

– Two PCE courses (Specific Competency Test) to provide extra points to access Spanish universities.

– An Extended Project Qualification. It helps students develop and demonstrate their project management skills and provides opportunities for extended writing.

– Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English

 

The curriculum is highly recognized so it offers superb access to top universities in the UK, Spain and around the world.

AS / A Level (Years 12 & 13)

A typical Hastings pupil will select 4 AS/A level subjects in Year 12 chosen from: Literature in English, History, Economics & Business, Geography, French, Applied ICT, Art & Design, Art & Photography, Drama & Theatre, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, and Further Mathematics. All pupils will sit the entire A Level in Spanish a year early at the end of their Year 12, unless they are a non-native speaker of Spanish in which case they will sit the level of exam most appropriate for their individual ability.

Spanish university preparation (Years 12 & 13)

Students who know it is at least possible that they will make applications to Spanish universities can also opt to take complementary Spanish university preparation classes in the following subjects: Historia del Arte, Literatura Universal y Lengua, Matemáticas aplicadas a las Ciencias Sociales, Geografía, DibujoTécnico, Biología, Física, Química y Matemáticas.
