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 Statistics (Business and Economics)
Previous school: Newtown High School
My local college didn’t give me the choice of subjects that I wanted to study at A Level but here there are no timetable restrictions. I really love statistics as you can apply so many of the methods you learn to every day situations.
A Level Computer Science (Mathematics, Physics)
Previous Institution: Ercall Wood Technology College
I want to complete a Physics degree after college and the subjects that Shrewsbury Colleges Group offer will help me to achieve that. Computer Science will help with this, as a lot of programming is involved. It is really interesting to learn how computers work.
IT Multimedia and Games BTEC (Photography, Computer Science)
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy
ICT has always been a big interest for me and once I have completed College I will be going to University of Wolverhampton to study games development. My favourite focus has been programming – you can get involved and you learn loads of new techniques. This course teaches useful skills that you can take into a variety of career roles.
A Level Geography (Business BTEC and ICT BTEC)
Previous school: Mary Webb School
Geography is a really interesting subject and you can have fun studying it here. You get the independence to do your own field work, but the teachers will take the time to help you out if you need it. It’s so different to GCSE Geography, you look at things differently and experience more.
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.
