We have two programmes of study available: our A level programme (2 years) leading to certification in GCE A levels and our Pre-A level programme (1 year) which builds students’ knowledge and skill base in Science, Mathematics and English, enabling them to join our A level programme the following year.
PRE-a lEVEL Programme – 1 YEAR
This A level preparation programme is designed to ready students for A level study. Students will study Mathematics, English and Science, which will include Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It offers specialist support and intensive English language tutoring for students whose second language is English. Students will have the opportunity to sit accredited examinations in English and Mathematics in the pre-A level year. In addition, students will be entered for a range of academic competitions including subject-specific Olympiads and will participate in the enrichment programme of the College.
A Level Programme – 2 YEARS
During the A level programme, students will study Mathematics, Further Mathematics where appropriate, and up to three other A level subjects selected from Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Computer Science. Economics A level is available to students who have reached a minimum standard of 6.5 in IELTS at the point of entry to the course. All A level students will be entered for Olympiad competitions and are expected to participate fully in the College enrichment programme. For international students, English language tuition and support through the IELTS programme is a compulsory component of the timetable.
Our entry assessments help to guide our decisions on the best programme of study for each student.
