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.

A Level Film Studies (English Literature and Classical Civilisation)
Previous school: Lacon Childe School
Film Studies has equipped me with various analytical skills which are particularly useful for essay writing. However, more importantly, it has taken me on a cinematic adventure, establishing a love and appreciation for film I previously didn’t possess.
A Level Business (Economics, Statistics)
Previous school: Thomas Adams School
The teachers are engaging at SCG and I really enjoy the lessons – they are well taught. I have enjoyed learning about finance and also how Twitter can be used in national and international business. Over the Summer I successfully gained an Internship with the JP Morgan Think Ahead Program.
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.
A Level Geography (English Literature, History)
Previous Institution: Llanidloes High School
Geography is an interesting subject and the teachers get you involved. I came to SCG because I wanted a change and it felt like the best option for me. It is great to learn about the world, climate change and globalisation – there is a wide range of aspects covered. After College I want to study Anthropology at university.
A Level Law (Politics, Sociology)
Previous school: Shrewsbury Academy
Law can be a challenging A Level, but it is worth it and I thrive when being pushed. The resources are great here and the support is amazing - I picked SCG after coming to an Open Evening. The aspect I find
most interesting to study is manslaughter cases and I have especially enjoyed learning about battered woman syndrome. I would like to become a solicitor or barrister in family law so I will be going to study Law at Edge Hill University.
