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 Music (Business, Economics, Psychology)
Previous school: Church Stretton School
I will study Music at Durham University and then do a PGCE as I would like to become a college Music teacher. This has been inspired by the great teachers at SCG and all the hard work they have put in to help me. I learnt composition and theory and truly developed my skills as a Musician. I play classical guitar and never thought I’d be able to consider it as a future career. I also take part in the MaDA performances and am a member of the college choir - these are great confidence builders.
A Level Physics (Chemistry and Maths)
Previous school: Bishop's Castle Community College
Doing Physics at A Level confirmed to me that I wanted to continue it at university. It is a challenging subject, however all the hard work is worth it and very rewarding.
A Level Media Studies (Film Studies and ICT BTEC)
Previous Institution: The Priory School
Media Studies is my favourite subject and I want to go into film production after College. I really enjoyed making my own music videos.
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.
A Level Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Further Maths
Previous Institution: Belvidere School, Shrewsbury
I really enjoy Chemistry and think it’s a great subject. I want to study Engineering at university and my Chemistry A Level will help. It is an exciting subject with loads of practical sessions. It allows you to investigate everyday things and discover how they work.
