A Levels are suitable if you enjoy academic study and are considering going on to university.

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 Levels develop the knowledge, skills and study habits to excel at university, as well as the attributes recognised by employers. 


Your academic studies will be complemented with enrichment opportunities such as trips and mentoring, providing the perfect springboard for your future career.


Most students identify three subjects that they are interested in studying. Alternatively, you may wish 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 the A Level combinations required for entry onto courses, so when you are deciding what subjects to choose, it’s a good idea to check what combination is right for you and your next steps. We can offer advice and guidance to help you choose the subjects that are right for you and your future.


Every A Level will have its own entry requirement; take a look at each course for further information.


Our Aspire programmes in VETMED, STEM, Humanities & Social Sciences and Sustainability will give you further opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of your chosen subjects and help you prepare for university and the career of your choice.
