The majority of our students will follow a course comprising four AS subjects. These subjects are chosen from the wide range on offer listed below. Some of the subjects will be familiar from GCSE and some, Psychology for example, will be new. At the end of Year 12, students take their End of Year exams and then continue into Year 13 where most students will follow three A2 subjects.
Below you can find a list of the courses we are proud to offer our students. Please note courses offered are dependent on viable student numbers, so may vary from year to year.
