A Levels

Our A Levels focus on academic subjects, and are highly valued by universities and employers, leading to a range of rewarding degrees and careers. Many students who choose to study A Levels will go straight to university. A Levels are studied over a two-year period and your final grade will be based mainly on your exams at the end of Year 13.

Your A Levels Study Programme will contain many opportunities for you to expand your skills, knowledge and interests, for example:

  • Careers Guidance
    At the Sixth Form College, there are lots of opportunities for you to think about your future and plan your next steps. You can explore your career ideas with our great partners such as Legal Action for  aspiring Lawyers, MedicLink for aspiring Doctors and Lloyds Junior Scholars for those interested in business and finance.  Many students are successful in securing competitive work placements through our employer partnerships and networks.  Those aiming for Oxbridge are supported through the application process, including interview practice.  
  • Enrichment
    In addition to your A Level studies, there are numerous extra activities you can take part in at the Sixth Form College. Every year we have a college production and a college Talent Show. There are trips and visits as well as a wide range of clubs and societies: Chess, Electronics, student magazine (The Toast), Politics in Action, Maths Challenge, LGBTQ, Amnesty International, Debating, Life Drawing, FemSoc, Dance, Duke of Edinburgh, London Citizens, Chemistry Club, Page-Turners Reading Group, Student Union, Environmental Campaigning and much more. Take part in our Enrichment CANDI CHALLENGE and win gold!  And, in addition to all this we have a wide and varied programme of Sports on offer.

The initial deadline for submitting a completed application for A Levels was 31 January 2019. As this date has now passed, we won’t be able to invite you to our interview days in March. We hope that there may still be places available on your chosen courses after we have carried out our first round of A Level interviews. If so, we will contact you by 30 April to arrange an interview.

 

Transferring into our Year 13 A Level programme

Occasionally, students enquire about transferring from their current school/college into Year 13 of our A Level programme. If you are in this position we will take a look at your request and let you know whether or not this might be a possibility. In order for us to do this please send us the required information via our Year 13 Transfer Form.

We would advise you to also make an additional application to join our Year 12, in case a transfer is not possible.
