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.
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.
A Level Textiles (Music and Psychology)
Previous Institution: Charlton School
The College had all the subjects I wanted and I really enjoy textiles. Studying it at A Level teaches you so many new skills. The teacher creates an environment where you can truly explore textiles and you always get the support you need. My favourite skill to learn was free hand stitching on the machine - I could be so expressive and free with it.
A Level Sociology (Applied Science BTEC and Health & Social Care BTEC)
Previous Institution: Church Stretton School
I thought Sociology A Level sounded really interesting. I want to go into Nursing after College and it will really help me achieve that. I enjoyed learning about sociological methods. Sociology helps you to have an open mind and see things from different perspectives.
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 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.
