A Levels courses

Why choose A Levels at West Notts?

Coming in September 2021

You will be taught at the new Mansfield and Ashfield Sixth Form College at our Chesterfield Road campus based in Mansfield’s town centre, offering you a dedicated and professional environment to study.

A Levels your way...

You can choose to study 3-4 A Level subjects or choose to study two A Level subjects and one of the following vocational qualifications:

Vocational qualifications involve a greater proportion of assessments via coursework rather than exams. Students also undertake hands-on learning to boost their employability skills, and broaden future career opportunities.

Alongside your choices, you may also be able to study one of these additional subjects, worth extra UCAS points:

  • The Extended Project Qualification – worth half the UCAS points of an A Level, this is an individual research project on a topic of your choosing and is valued by universities.
  • Maths - Level 3 - an opportunity to develop your maths skills – great alongside A Levels including psychology, geography, business and science/s etc.
Enjoy wider learning

In addition we offer many enrichment activities open to all A Level students:

  • The Brilliant Club – working with a PHD student to engage in university-level skills.
  • 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.
  • University visits – including the East Midlands UCAS exhibition.
  • Oxbridge Medicine and Law Societies – meet students already enjoying university.
  • Personal statement – we’re here to help students achieve a competitive UCAS application.
  • My World, My Home - a prestigious leadership development programme for young people, in association with Friends of the Earth and SOS-UK. Plan and organise a local community campaign that makes a tangible change for the environment.
  • Learner Representative and peer mentor opportunities.
  • Opportunities to join the college's Academy of Sport programme.
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.
