A Levels

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 county’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 four BTEC courses which are each the equivalent of one A Level.

Applied Science BTEC, Business BTEC
Previous school: Church Stretton School

I had heard great reviews for the College from past and present students. Coming here meant I could be on the Two Plus programme and get my English GCSE so I can complete my A Levels. After college I would like to do a higher Apprenticeship in Engineering. Applied Science gives you a good understanding of the work environment in the science industry and I’ve really enjoyed learning about protein biosynthesis.

Applied Science BTEC (Sport BTEC, A Level Maths)
Previous Institution: The Priory School

Applied Science is a very interactive and fun subject. Experiments are my favourite thing to do and there are lots to get stuck into. Applied Science can really help you gain UCAS points and get good results. This summer I will be going to work at a sports camp in Pennsylvania through Camp America. I would then like to continue into a sports-based career and this BTEC will be an asset.

I have completed two placements at Shortwood Primary School as part of my studies. This has helped me to decide on my future aim of becoming a Primary School Teacher. I enjoy Health & Social Care as it helps me balance out my workload.

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.

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.
