Students also have to meet the specified entry requirements for the courses they wish to study.
Most students will opt for a program of study that includes three courses, however when you apply, you may wish to indicate that you wish to be considered to take a fourth A Level. Suitability for this programme will be discussed at applicant meetings in January 2024. Any subject can be studied as a fourth option and some are available to sit as an AS in Summer 2025 in the event that a student decides to not take their fourth option forwards into Year 13.
Please be aware when you complete your application you will be asked to select only 3 A levels and there will be a question which asks you to indicate whether you would like to be considered for fourth A Level. All students who indicate yes to this question will be met for a 1:1 meeting to discuss options and suitability for this additional course.
When completing your Application Form, please select three subjects in order of preference, the first being the subject which is most important to you -
- You can only study Further Maths if you are also studying Maths.
- A BTEC Single course will be studied for two years and will count as one of your choices.
- When choosing a BTEC Single Course, students should select a further two subjects.
- The Extended Project Qualification can be selected as a fourth option for any student.
Please see the Prospectus for further information about each subject.
Each Student must also select two reserve subjects, with the first being the one you would most like to study. If we are not able to meet any of your first choices, you will be given a subject from your reserve list.
Extended Project Qualification
EPQ is an A-level standard standalone qualification designed to extend and develop your students' abilities beyond the A-level syllabus and prepare for university or their future career. It can be taken as an extension of other Level 3 qualifications or vocational qualifications. It's worth half an A-level (28 UCAS points). It's recognised by universities and employers. Many universities make lower A-level offers to students undertaking an EPQ.
In a rapidly changing and complex world we are committed to ensuring that our students leave us equipped to meet the needs of the modern workplace. To support them in this area we have developed our Glynspire Programme. Follow the link below to find out more.
