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 Sociology (Business, Photography)
Previous school: The Priory 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. Sociology is a relevant and interesting subject. I will be continuing it at university, but not sure what I want to specialise in yet, I just know I want to work in Sociology. The teaching is good, and relevant to current situations in the world and you learn skills that you can transfer over to other subjects. I have enjoyed learning about crime sociology the most – why crimes are committed and how authorities react.
A Level English Language (Law and Drama & Theatre)
Previous school: Mary Webb School
I came here because it was local to me and I enjoyed the pre-enrolment days which were well organised. English Language is a good A Level to have and it is super interesting to see how language has evolved and changed through time. The teachers are a great help and the resources are brilliant; there are plenty of text books.
A Level Economics (Politics, Psychology, French)
Previous Institution: Bishop's Castle Community College
I want to study Economics at university and I really enjoyed it at GCSE. The subject gives you a wider perspective on the world and I particularly enjoy behavioural economics: asking and learning why. SCG had all the subjects I wanted and to be able to study in this town is great.
BTEC Business, BTEC Creative Media, English GCSE
Previous Institution: Lakelands School
I didn’t have enough GCSE grades to study A Levels straight away, so took the option of the Two Plus Programme. After completion I was able to progress to A Levels where I have been successful. Two Plus is a great opportunity and if you work hard, it can really pay off.
A Level Drama & Theatre Studies (Music and Film Studies)
Previous Institution: Idsall School
I love Drama and it is the field I want my future career to be in. A Level Drama is confidence building and eye opening and I have had a really great first year. I am looking into acting on stage and screen after College. My favourite thing this year has been learning Brecht techniques.
