We have a reputation for excellence and offer the widest choice of A Levels in the county. Our students achieve high A Level pass rates that lead to places at the country’s top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.

A Levels will suit you if you perform well in exams, you want to study a range of subjects or if you know that you want to follow a particular career path or study a particular subject at university. A Levels are two year courses with the whole of the course assessed through exams at the end of the two years. A Levels are mostly assessed by exams though some A Levels include coursework.

You can choose from a variety of A Levels as well as three BTEC/CTEC courses which are each the equivalent of one A Level.

A Level Physical Education (Biology, Psychology)
Previous school: Lakelands School

I want to study a sport subject at university, probably physical therapy, so taking Physical Education at A Level was an obvious choice. I really enjoy all the practicals that we do. I played for the England Under 19s Rugby team and I am also part of the College Rugby team which I found out about at the Induction Festival during my first week at SCG.

English Combined (Psychology, Drama & Theatre)
Previous Institution: Charlton School

I have always been interested in English, so when I came for a taster day and the English teachers were so good, I felt I had to study it at A Level. I have really enjoyed studying The Handmaid’s Tale. I would like to study English with Drama at university and my dream would
be to work as a script writer. English combined is such an interesting subject and so different from GCSEs. You get to choose your coursework and there is a respectful freedom.

A Level Electronics (Product Design, Business BTEC)
Previous Institution: Welshpool High School

SCG was the only College that offered Electronics A Level in the local area and I also wanted a fresh start in a new environment. I studied systems and control at GCSE and really enjoyed the electronic elements. I am quite an independent learner and the teachers allow me to read ahead and go at my pace. Next year I will be working, but I then want to study electronics at university - possibly kick-starting my career in circuit or product design.

A Level Graphic Communication (Music and Chemistry)
Previous school: Llanidloes High School

I like the exploratory ability to have the fixed starting point of a brief, but then to have free reign to discover and experiment. It’s creative freedom with a purpose. You’ve got the confidence to put something down and then see what comes of it and refine it.

A Level Sociology (Business, Photography)
Previous school: The Priory School

I thought Sociology A Level sounded really interesting. I want to go into Nursing after College and it will really help me achieve that. I enjoyed learning about sociological methods. Sociology helps you to have an open mind and see things from different perspectives. Sociology is a relevant and interesting subject. I will be continuing it at university, but not sure what I want to specialise in yet, I just know I want to work in Sociology. The teaching is good, and relevant to current situations in the world and you learn skills that you can transfer over to other subjects. I have enjoyed learning about crime sociology the most – why crimes are committed and how authorities react.
