Why choose A Levels?
A Levels are accepted by universities and employers around the world, meaning the sky’s the limit to where you can progress. If you study A Levels you can explore the subjects you loved at GCSE level in greater depth and detail.

A Levels are the most common qualifications studied by those who are planning on going to University. Degree courses may require you to get certain grades in particular A level subjects, so it’s always worth having in mind what you might want to study at what university and what entry requirements are in place.
What should I study?
Our A Levels are offered in study blocks of three, so it’s important you decide which three subjects you want to study together. See our A Levels options grid to find out which subjects can be combined. Please note: blocks are based on the 2018-19 year offer, and could be subject to change for 2019-20.
To help you decide which course is right for you, our progression route guide explains the various levels and qualifications required for your course and how you might wish to progress with your studies. The A Levels we offer are listed below.

Ready to apply?
You should submit an application as soon as possible (even if you have not yet received your confirmed grades).
You can apply at any time throughout the year, however we recommend you apply as soon as you can because popular courses fill up fast! Try to submit your application between September and the end of March, but don’t worry if you miss this timeframe - unlike other schools, sixth forms and colleges we welcome applications throughout the year and up to enrolment in August/September.
Ready for 2019!
We are excited to announce that from September 2019, we can now offer a blended approach for those who want to study both A Levels and a vocational subject. Choose from either our Extended Certificate in Sport or our Extended Certificate in Health & Social Care and study two A Levels or one A Level and another extended certificate alongside. Each extended certificate is the equivalent to one A Level.
NOTE: these courses are for 16-18 year olds only. Anyone aged 19+ must consider studying either a Pre-Access Course (Level 2, GCSE level) or an Access to Higher Education course (Level 3, A Level level) – find out more about these Access courses.
Alternatively, if you are aged 19+ and would like to only study English and/or Maths, contact our Admissions Team to discuss assessment dates and course details: call 01274 433333 or email [email protected]
