Sixth Form Choosing your Course

We offer 33 Level 3 courses of study which allows you to choose courses best suited to your needs. You may wish to combine A-Levels with Applied A-Levels and BTEC National courses. A-Levels are assessed mainly by examinations with Applied A combining examinations with a coursework element. Level 3 BTEC National courses usually take two years to complete and are assessed by portfolio coursework and practical assignments. You need to decide which type of assessment is best suited to you and your future achievement.

All our Level 3 courses allow excellent progression and can lead to a place at university, further training, employment or an apprenticeship. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to ensure you research thoroughly your desired career paths prior to enrolling onto our Level 3 courses.
