A Level Overview

 Our A Level courses span two years.

The chart below shows three possible assessment approaches. This will vary by subject and this is made clear in each of the subject guides in this document. Typically an AS Level is completed in one year, extended to an A Level in the second year (Option 2 below).

(AS is first half of A Level)


If externally examined at the end of Year 12, students will receive an AS grade which will be recorded on their university application forms. If students are continuing any subjects onto A Level which are not examined at AS, then the grades on their university application forms will be recorded based on what their teachers expect them to achieve at the end of Year 13.

As a school we meticulously select the syllabuses that best suit our students. Subjects currently offer one of the following exam boards:

  • AQA A Level
  • Cambridge International A Level
  • Edexcel International A Level
  • Edexcel A Level

 

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

These entry requirements are guidelines and we review each student’s application on a case- by-case basis:

  • Five (I)GCSEs at A* - C or grade 9 - 4
  • A minimum of grade B or grade 6 at (I)GCSE in subjects you wish to take for A Level
  • A* or grade 9 in (I)GCSE Mathematics necessary to take Further Mathematics A Level

Some subjects may be accessible to students despite not having studied them before. This will be at the discretion of the school.


ASSESSMENT

Each subject that a student takes receives a separate grade. Grades are benchmarked using internationally recognised standards, with clear guidelines to explain the levels of achievement.

A Levels are reported on a grade scale from A* (highest) to E (minimum required performance). There is no A* grade for AS Levels which run from grade A to E.
