We ask that all our Year 12 day students have 7 GCSE passes at Grade C or above including English and Maths to meet our Minimum Qualification Standard.
Given that A level is a considerable step up from GCSE, we encourage A level students to choose a subject in which they achieved a minimum of grade B at GCSE, and we also expect them to have completed a fair amount of preparation in the summer before they start the courses. Please note that specific subjects have minimum grade requirements.
The A level subject options are as below. To see which combinations are possible, choose one subject from each column – it’s really that simple.
We also offer vocational courses (BTEC Nationals and OCR Cambridge Technicals) in Business, ICT and a double award (equivalent to two A levels) in Sport and Science, so whatever the career path they choose, we’ll have the tools to guide them there.
The Extended Project Qualification is offered from the spring term of Year 12. It is an optional dissertation or project based enterprise which equates to half an A level and demonstrates independent learning and research, project management and the critical use of resources.

Music at OSH still provides an excellent non-career choice for enthusiastic and able musicians – allowing them to develop self-discipline, teamwork, creativity and confidence, all of which will prove immensely valuable in later life.
Musicians at OSH have had the opportunity to represent the school at concert events in Barcelona and Venice, whilst the student-organised ‘Battle of the Bands’ still proves to be one of the most popular events on the school calendar. Our links with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Central England Ensemble mean that they won’t be short of opportunities to take their musicianship as far as they can.
