Grades and Courses
We offer over 20 A Level courses as well as alternative programs. Students are expected to gain a minimum of 8 A*–C grades at GCSE, including English and Mathematics, for entry on to any A Level course, with at least an A grade in the chosen subject. If a subject has not been previously studied, the requirements are a minimum of:
- A Grade in English, for Economics or a Humanities subject
- A grade in Maths for Maths, Computing and Sciences
Students are able to study up to the equivalent of four A Level course choices, this includes combining A Levels alongside BTEC courses.

Our offer may be subject to change depending on the popularity of courses. The information that you provide on your application form will help us in the development of a flexible curriculum model.
