learn the skills you need
A Levels are Level 3 subjects which are taken over two years. They are ideal if you enjoyed a subject at GCSE and want to continue to study it at the next level - and maybe at university in the future.
A Level courses are suitable if you enjoy a more academic style of learning. They develop the knowledge, skills and study habits needed to excel at university - as well as the attributes recognised by employers worldwide.
Your academic studies will be complemented with an array of enrichment opportunities and you will be encouraged to get involved in one of our Academies to help further develop your knowledge and understanding.
Most students identify three subjects that they are interested in studying. Alternatively,Â you might decide to combine two A Levels with one BTEC option (for example Sociology, Biology and BTEC Health and Social Care).
Universities can be very specific about theÂ A Level subject combinations required for entry onto courses, so when you are deciding what subjects to choose, itâ€™s a good idea to check what combination is right for you and yourÂ next steps. We can offer advice and guidance to help you choose the subjects that are rightÂ for you and your future.
Every A Level will have its own entry requirement; take a look at each course for further information.
If you want to study A Levels but didn't get the grades you hoped for, don't worry, why not join our Step Up To A Levels programme?!
