Entry Profile

Entry profile - September 2018

Entry to A Level courses requires 5 or more GCSEs at grade A*-C /9-4 in different subjects. We strongly recommend that this includes a minimum GCSE grade 4 in English Language and Mathematics. Resits in GCSE Mathematics and English Language will be offered to improve your grade should you wish to. Helpful and effective information, advice and guidance is important to us. At enrolment, we are prepared to have a conversation with any student who has not fully met the entry profile. 

All subjects will be offering the two year linear A level. AS level qualifications will not be offered.
