There are over 130 students in the sixth form, the majority of whom are taking three or four A-Levels on a two year programme of AS and A2. Entry is dependent on satisfactory GCSE grades usually including a range of A*, A, B and C grades together with a good reference from the previous school.

If you have studied AS Levels elsewhere and wish to join us for A2 Levels, we will give our best advice about which courses to take. Sometimes you might need to transfer examination boards. This is usually a straightforward task and we can advise you further on this matter. The college has experience in successfully enabling students’ transition into the upper sixth year.

For some international students whose English skills are judged to be not quite at the level required to undertake the Two Year A-Level Programme, a three year A-Level option is currently available. This is undertaken at a slightly slower pace to the traditional Two Year Programme.
