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 Photography (Music and Business)
Previous school: Church Stretton School
I came here because it offered the subject choices that I wanted. Photography is something that I have always loved doing. It helps with your confidence as you are often approaching people to get the best shot. I am really looking forward to the trip to New York that they take every year, it will be amazing. After College I want to go to University to do Events Management and I will use my Photography A Level skills to get great event photos.
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.
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.
A Level Classical Civilisation (English Combined and Health & Social Care BTEC)
Previous School: Meole Brace School
I have always enjoyed Classics and the Greek gods – Percy Jackson is my favourite book series. Classical Civilisation is a bit different from other A Levels and I love studying the heroes and myths. It also looks at an element of History and is overall a really interesting subject. I am going to continue Classics at University of Winchester, then I hope to become a Tour Guide in Greece and Italy – telling all my customers the interesting things about gods and mythology.
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.
