A Level

College's size and success mean that we are able to offer a wide range of courses.

A Level candidates usually undertake three or four A Level subjects, with the optimum number varying depending on the student to find the right balance between academic rigour and co-curricular interests. A Levels are taken as a linear course with examinations in all subjects are taken at the end of the second year. Many students also undertake the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which enables independent study in an area of personal interest. In the first term of Sixth Form, all A Level students take a Skills for Academic Learning course, which is designed to equip them with the skills essential for academic study such as research, discursive writing, critical thinking, presentation and numerical reasoning.
