We offer a variety of different courses at different levels:
· AS/A level courses (Level 3)
· BTEC level 2 and level 3 courses
· NVQ level 2 courses
· OCR Nationals (Level 3)
· GCSE resits in Mathematics and English (Level 2)
Level 3 courses are the most traditional route to University and Further Education courses. At A level, each subject is split into separate qualifications: AS Level in year 12 and A Level BTEC courses are assessed in year 13 throughout the year and have no examination. These courses may be one or two years in duration. The NVQ and OCR Nationals are two year courses which are assessed throughout the duration.
Most universities base their offers to students on passes in three level 3 courses, and we, therefore, encourage students to complete at least three courses over the two year period.
General Entry Requirements
The general requirements for admission into Year 12 are as follows:
5 GCSEs (or equivalent) at A*- C
General expectation of Grade B in subjects being studied at AS/ A2 – but others considered on individual merit
Specific course entry requirements will therefore vary and be agreed at interview.
