A-Level or BTEC?

We offer a wide range of A-levels, Level 3 BTEC and CTECs, and T level qualifications. students can choose to study all A-levels or all BTECs/CTECs, with many choosing to study a combination of both.

You will normally study three subjects at A-level (or the equivalent number of BTEC/CTECs) but if you have very good GCSE results you may be able to choose four if you achieve an average GCSE point score of 7 or above. Students completing a T Level programme will receive a qualification equivalent to three A-levels.

A-Level, T Level or BTEC/CTEC courses?

A-levels are level 3 qualifications, mainly assessed through exams which take place at the end of two years. Level 3 BTECs and CTECs are mainly assessed through coursework at regular intervals during the course, with some practical assessments or work experience. T Levels are equivalent to three A-levels and are assessed through a mixture of exams, coursework, and controlled assessment. When studying a T Level, you will also complete a 315-hour industry placement
