A Levels

In the Sixth Form, students choose from a range of A Levels to tailor a study programme that will support their future career. 

Our A Level programme offers breadth and includes subjects that are favoured by Russell Group universities and Oxbridge.

In Lower Sixth, students choose to study four subjects at A Level.  As they progress into Upper Sixth, students can choose to continue with four A Levels or focus on three. 

Teachers personalise learning within small class sizes, playing to students’ strengths and talents and the tutorial-style learning and co-educational environment provide excellent preparation for university studies.
