GCE A & AS Level:

These Level 3 qualifications are assessed for most courses through examination (typically 70-80%) but controlled assessment and/or practical assignments are a significant contribution (20-30%).  AS (Advanced Subsidiary) is the first half of an A level, and is also a qualification in its own right. A2 is the second half of an A level. A & AS -Level units will be assessed in January and/or June.

GCE Applied A & AS Level

These Level 3 qualifications are assessed for most courses through examination (typically 70-80%) but controlled assessment and/or practical assignments are a significant contribution (20-30%).  AS (Advanced Subsidiary) is the first half of an A level, and A2 is the second half of an A level. A & AS -Level units will be assessed in January and/or June.

BTEC National Level 3:

This Level 3 qualification has the equivalency to A Levels and has a strong practical and vocational element to its assessment. A combination of practical, internal and external assessments will be used in these courses. They can offer the equivalency of 3 A levels (Extended Diploma), 2 A levels (Diploma), or 1 A level (Subsidiary Diploma).

GCSE English and Maths:

These are essential qualifications for life, learning and work. Students who do not achieve A*-C grades at the end of Key Stage 4, must retake these qualifications in Sixth Form. They will be studied alongside the qualifications listed above.
