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/CTEC courses which are each the equivalent of one A Level.
A Level Law (Fine Art and History)
Previous Institution: Overseas
I want to study Criminal Law at university and the A Level gives an insight into this, as well as a range of other areas of Law.
A Level Geography (English Literature, History)
Previous Institution: Llanidloes High School
Geography is an interesting subject and the teachers get you involved. I came to SCG because I wanted a change and it felt like the best option for me. It is great to learn about the world, climate change and globalisation – there is a wide range of aspects covered. After College I want to study Anthropology at university.
A Level French and German (History and Politics)
Previous Institution: William Brookes
The College offered me the freedom I wanted as I couldn’t study German at my previous school’s sixth form. I want to study French and German at university and go into diplomatic service after that, so languages are very important for me. I enjoy the depth we go into in each language and because the classes are smaller you can dive into more issues with your teachers and peers.
A Level Film Studies (Psychology, Drama & Theatre)
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School
Film Studies is such a varied and interesting subject with a mix between creative and academic. We work in a relaxed environment and the teachers amazing knowledge make it great fun. We get the chance to go on great trips, like Harry Potter Studios and New York. My favourite film that we have studied is A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night – a Persian-language American vampire western. I will be pursuing an acting career once I have completed my A Levels.
A Level Politics (Law and Religious Studies)
Previous school: Priory School
I’m interested in Law and how the government works and I want to join the police after College, so Politics was a great A Level for me to do. I enjoy learning about how voting behaviours have changed through time. Politics is a rewarding subject that can be frequently used in your everyday life.
