Sixth Form - What We Offer

A2 and AS Levels

A-Levels are traditionally two-year courses of study, available in a wide range of subjects. Students have tended to study either three or two A-Levels.

In the light of changes by the government, all school and college courses which started in, or after, September 2000 have been affected. These changes include a revised approach to A-Levels. The first part of the old A-Level course is now called AS Level and the second part is now called A2.

A-Levels under this new scheme, as in previous years, will still play a crucial role in providing entry to university, college, a trainee management role, or the start of a professional career.
