Out of those the only ones I would have liked to take are textiles, ancient history, textiles and possibly re

    If only they offered straight Philosophy, that would be :coma:. Instead we do Philosophy & Ethics with a boringly religious focus half of the time. :sad:

    Politics/Economics - there was a teacher who taught this, but he retired several years ago.
    Law... I suppose this would be useful if someone wanted to go into law.

    All languages except French, German and Spanish (and Latin if you did afterschool classes) weren't offered at any level. Also Classics/Ancient History, Economics and Politics. I'd only be interested in Classics/Anicient History out of all of them though.

    It also doesn't do General Studies and only does Critical Thinking up to AS level. Which I guess is good (people aren't wasting their time doing those courses).

    Languages other than French and German, Photography, other **** such as Film Studies (although I think they've just started doing Media Studies). Don't seem to be missing out on much apart from languages really.

    Anything like Classics, Ancient or Medieval History, Philosophy, Latin etc. I would have loved to have taken any of them. They sometimes offer philosophy and latin and I asked to take them both but they weren't available for our year. =( Other than that, there's a pretty good selection.

    The only subject I can really think of that I would have considered is Economics. Everything else I wasn't worried about. I think it's really bad how so many places seem to not offer languages...

    Geography was offered at GCSE but not at A Level which was strange.

    Erm, loads of them.
    Food tech, dance, any languages apart from Fr and Sp, politics, economics, english language, classics, R.E.... anything more obscure than the standard they don't offer it.
    I'm the first class to do English lit and the 2nd to do Spanish The 6th form's tiny and it's only been open 14 years.

    Classics, Classical Civilisations, Ancient history/any history other than modern history, RS.

    EDIT: We have pretty much everything I would've liked to take, but sometimes class times clash. My A2 Maths class clashes with AS Philosophy. C'est la vie.

    Nothing significant, the only one of any interest for me that isn't offered would be Spanish, but I didn't do the GCSE as it wasn't offered at that level either.

    They've since introduced it, I think for both GCSE and A level.

    They don't do some other A levels I know some places do:
    Dance
    Photography
    RS
    Travel and Tourism
    Resistant materials

    Although none of these are of any interest to me.

    I was tempted by economics, philosophy and Japanese, but none of those A-levels were offered at my sixth form That said, our sixth form didnt have many a-levels at all. Just the really standard ones like maths, sciences, RS, PE, IT, Art, French, Spanish and Business.
