  • A fourth A Level subject.

  • The Access Project – one-to-one tutorials with industry professionals.
  • Guest speakers – from publishers, to barristers and cosmetic scientists.
  • Day trip and visits – Jaguar Land Rover, Harry Potter Studio’s Tour, European Court of Human Rights, Strasbourg, etc.

Feel supported

Our A Level students will be allocated an individual progress mentor who is there to guide you throughout your studies. As part of this, you’ll have regular one-to-one meetings to track your progress. You’ll also be supported by your tutors, and will take part in group tutorials to learn additional study skills.
