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.
A Level Photography (Music and Business)
Previous Institution: 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.
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 Economics (Politics, History)
Previous Institution: Wrekin College
Both my brothers came to Shrewsbury Colleges Group and really recommended it. I wanted more freedom at College, so this was the perfect choice. I enjoy studying how individual businesses work in Economics and I want to continue pursuing it at University level.
A Level Physical Education (English Language and Psychology)
Previous Institution: Priory School
My sister came here and loved it – she gave it rave reviews, so that piqued my interest. PE was my best subject at school, so it was logical to carry on at A Level. You learn things you’d never expect like the history of physical activities. I’ve enjoyed learning about biology in PE and I’ve also learnt loads of great life lessons at this college.
