Welcome to the Sixth Form at Dubai British School Jumeirah Park!
Our aim at Dubai British School Jumeirah Park is to provide our Sixth Form students with a stimulating, purposeful and balanced curriculum, leading to qualifications that are internationally recognised and accepted as entry requirements for Higher Education.
At DBSJP there are a wide range of options available with three academic pathways on offer to our Sixth Form students. We offer flexibility for Sixth Form pathways where students can choose a combination of A-Levels and BTEC courses. It is expected that the majority of students will complete the equivalent of three A-Levels.
Our students are offered an extensive curriculum based around career aspirations alongside enrichment opportunities to aid their development into well-rounded adults who make positive contributions to their respective community. Students are encouraged to excel beyond their academic achievement to develop transferrable skills and competencies to secure their success:
Senior Student Programme
Comprehensive Careers Provision
Work Experience Opportunities
Peer Mentor Programme
Duke of Edinburgh Award
A varied extra-curricular programme allowing students to pursue interests in a wide range of activities.
GCE Advanced Level (A Level)
Students can choose to study three A-Level subjects and will undertake all units listed for the stand-alone A-Level qualification at the end of Year 13. Students who wish to study more than three subjects will need to have this agreed with the Deputy Head of Secondary.
NB: AS level exams do not count towards the final A-Level grade, they are a stand-alone qualification.
International BTEC–Level 3 Qualifications
Students can choose to study three International BTEC courses. For this academic year, we are looking to offer International BTEC Double Award Business and Performing Arts (worth two BTEC), Single Award Business, Travel and Tourism, Sports and IT.
The International BTEC programme provides a specialist work-related programme of study that covers the key knowledge and practical skills required. It offers flexibility and a choice of emphasis through the specialist units. The qualifications offer an engaging programme for those who are clear about the area of employment that they wish to enter. The courses are practical and vocational and are closely linked to the world of work.
A blended curriculum of A-Level and International BTEC
Our option blocks are designed so that students may study a combination of A-Level and International BTEC courses. Students can select two A-Levels and one International BTEC or one A-Level and two International BTEC subjects.
All of the above courses allow access to universities in the UK, USA, Canada and elsewhere in the world, however, students are well-advised to ensure their exit qualifications will satisfy higher education requirements for their desired destination.
In line with other International and Independent Schools, subjects will only run with viable student numbers. The Leadership Team will do their utmost to ensure that students are supported with their first-choice options.
Entry onto Sixth Form study is conditional and therefore dependent upon students obtaining the (I)GCSE grade requirement for that individual subject and the general requirements for A Level courses.
Students will choose three subjects from the five option blocks: Students wishing to study a combination of four subjects from the blocks below must arrange a meeting with the Deputy Head of Secondary.
|Block A||Block B||Block C||Block D||Block E|
|BTEC Business (Single)||BTEC Business (Double)||BTEC IT||BTEC Performing Arts (Double)||BTEC Performing Arts (Single)|
|Economics||BTEC Sport||Business Studies||BTEC Travel & Tourism||Art|
|English Literature||English Language||Further Maths||Economics||3D Design|
|Spanish||Music||Media Studies||Computer Science||Geography|
|Graphic Communication||French||Drama||Arabic A|
Although we aim to provide students with their first choice, of course, we cannot guarantee that all classes/subjects will run and that students will automatically get their first choice of course. It is for this reason that we ask for your reserve course/subject to be identified when submitting your option form.
In addition to academic subjects, all students within the Sixth Form will follow a programme of PSHE, Careers, Moral Education & The VESPA Programme of Sixth Form Mindset.

We are delighted to support our students as they begin making choices about the next stage of their education. We have compiled a list of universities our students have expressed an interest in and included key information for our students. This includes key personnel, Zoom sessions and information about the various campuses.
