School leavers - A-levels

A-levels are suitable for anyone who enjoys academic study and are an ideal route to university. Even if you aren’t sure what you want to do after college, A-levels will enable you to continue your studies whilst also keeping your career options open.

We are extremely proud of our students who, last year, for the eighth consecutive year, achieved an overall pass rate of over 99% - many of whom went on to Russell Group universities, as well as higher apprenticeships or employment with world-class businesses.

When you plan your programme, it is important that you choose subjects that you enjoy as well as those which will help you on your career path. Our expert career specialist can provide you with advice as to the appropriate combination of subjects required to access various careers.

Some universities can be specific about required A-level combinations and grades, so it is advisable to speak to our specialist staff in our Advice & Guidance Centre.

In order to study A-levels, you will need to hold a minimum of GCSE Maths and English at grade 4 alongside three other GCSEs at grade 4 or above. You will be expected to achieve your predicted grades, and some A-level subjects will require higher grades which will be discussed in detail once you have applied.
