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 Electronics (Physics, ICT BTEC)
Previous Institution: Shrewsbury Academy
I do Electronics and Physics because they tie in really nicely together and will help me with an Apprenticeship in the future. I especially enjoy the practicals and building circuits, but there is also a good balance with theory work.
A Level Music (History and Geography)
Previous Institution: Priory School
I am thankful for the excellent music teaching I have received, both at the College and from my instrumental teachers. I am going to study Music at Cambridge University and am excited to continue expanding my musical knowledge. I feel very privileged to be going to such a prestigious university!
A Level Further Mathematics (Mathematics, Physics and German)
Previous Institution: Meole Brace School
Studying here has given me an even greater love of Maths because of the fantastic Maths department. The teachers are brilliant and I have access to all the resources I need. I got the opportunity to take part in the British Maths Olympiad and that really helped with my application to University. I am going to study Maths at St Johns College, Oxford University and I aspire to do academic research after that.
A Level Computer Science (Mathematics, Physics)
Previous Institution: Idsall School
Coming to SCG gave me freedom and the Computer Science course is fantastic. The teachers are great and they help you out when you need it, but they don’t spoon-feed you - you have independence. I love the theory as well as the practical tasks and it is vital you learn both. I enjoy looking at algorithms and databases and hope to go into cyber security or games development in the future.
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.
