Admissions information including a Sixth Form welcome video
Kettering Science Academy offers a range of courses, tailored to meet the needs and requirements of individuals from which students can move on to courses of higher education or full time employment.
In order to begin studies here at Kettering Science Academy, students must achieve five GCSEs at grade 5 or above. If students are studying vocational subjects only, they must achieve five GCSEs at grade 4 or above.

Kettering Science Sixth Form is committed to providing the most appropriate courses for our students.
Courses on offer are subject to student numbers.
- Most students study three A level or vocational subjects.
- A levels are now linear meaning that the overall qualification at A2 is assessed entirely at the end of the second year.
- Assessment varies across subjects – specific subject information can be found in the course details found later in this prospectus.
- A range of vocational qualifications are on offer alongside the traditional A level courses, allowing a mix and match approach whereby students can study a combination of A level and vocational qualifications.
