How Many Subjects?

The College uses the following guidelines for A Levels and BTECSs, and Technical Qualification Courses to help you select the number of courses and the type of course:

A Levels and BTECs

Students choose three courses in Year 12 and continue all of them in Year 13.

Technical Qualification Courses

Students choose one course which includes specialist training and a work placement where appropriate. Should it be required, students will receive tuition in English and Mathematics to secure GCSE qualifications.
