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 as a linear course; examinations in all subjects are taken at the end of the second year. For some girls, the optimum number will be three A Levels or three A Levels and one stand-alone AS Level, providing time for academic rigour and co-curricular interests.

Many girls undertake the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which enables independent study in an area of personal interest. SFC1 A Level girls take a Skills for Academic Learning course in their first term, which is designed to equip them with the skills essential for academic study such as research, discursive writing, critical thinking, presentation and numerical reasoning.

Typically at A Level we offer: Art, Biology, Chemistry, Classical Civilisation, Economics, English Literature, French, Further Maths, Geography, German, Government and Politics, Greek, History (Revolutions), History (British & USA), History of Art, Italian, Latin, Mandarin, Maths, Music, Physics, RS, Spanish and Theatre Studies. With such a broad range of subjects on offer, most academic interests can be catered for in the curriculum.
