Types of Study

A broad range of courses are available with something for every student. Course choices for Year 12 and Year 13 may include a mixture of A Levels and BTEC Level 3 Nationals.

All of our courses are directly linked to further study at university level. We have formal progression agreements with Kings College, London South Bank University and Birkbeck University. These provide students with a range of guaranteed conditional offers so that they are able to progress on to Higher Education at university.
