Your success at college relies on you being enrolled onto the right courses, and we are committed to doing everything we can to achieve this. With over 30 A Level courses and 14 vocational courses to choose from, we’re confident you will find the right combination of courses to meet your future needs. We advise students to select courses in line with their future plans, but you should also consider subjects you have shown ability in and that you will enjoy.
From September 2016, students on A Level programmes will select three A Levels to study over two years. Some students will be advised to take an AS Level or BTEC Subsidiary qualification alongside their A Levels. Students on a vocational study programme (e.g. BTEC/CACHE Diplomas) may also be advised to study an AS Level or BTEC Subsidiary qualification alongside their main programme of study. All students are expected to complete work experience and participate in enrichment activities, in addition to their timetabled lessons.
We have a small but comprehensive range of courses for students studying at Level 2, aimed at supporting you to progress onto Level 3 programmes in the following year. It is now a requirement that any student who has not achieved GCSE English Language or Maths at Grade C or above must be working towards this as part of their studies.
