Students should select four subjects to be studied at A level and consider the following points when deciding which courses to choose:

  • the quality of the results is what matters
  • follow an enjoyable and diverse course that reflects personal strengths and interests
  • subjects chosen should be relevant, to some degree, to potential university courses

Subjects are studied in much greater depth than they were lower down the school and students have at up to five periods a week for each subject, with each teaching period lasting 65 minutes.  In order to provide as much flexibility in subject choices as possible, please be aware that some A Level lessons will take place between 3.55pm and 5pm.
