Courses & Qualifications
It is our intention to offer students a range of Level 3 courses over a period of 2 years.
Our expectation is that students will study 3 qualifications as well as completing some work experience, and many will also complete an EPQ or Sports Leadership qualification.
Where students have aspirations to apply to Cambridge or Oxford, they will study a 4 A Level programme.
Although we always aim to meet the needs of as many students as possible, some courses may not be able to run without ample numbers of students to make it viable. Alternative solutions will always be provided in such unforeseen circumstances well in advance of the commencement of studies.
