A Levels

A-Levels are a great option for those who enjoy learning in a classroom and who are planning to progress to higher study.

Why Study A Levels at College?

College is very different from school or sixth form – you are treated as an adult, will learn how to manage your own time outside of lectures and develop new skills. There are no bells, assemblies or uniform – you are free to take control of your own learning in a sociable and mature atmosphere. You will be able to learn in a fun and dynamic environment and your lessons will be both challenging and stimulating. During your studies you will be supported by our highly-qualified staff, who will regularly review your progress against your target grades and future plans and guide you in your next steps.

When you study A Levels at with us you will have the opportunity to join a Career Pathway; each Pathway has a focus on a distinct career area, which determines the main subject qualifications.

Simply choose the one that will lead you into the career you want. Once you have selected your Pathway, you will then choose from a complementary set of subjects to study alongside your main subject. All of our Pathways provide industry relevant learning to ensure you leave with the skills that employers are looking for.
