A Level Pathways

Our A Level pathways are designed to work alongside your A Level course to provide you with opportunities to develop the skills that will help you progress to university, an apprenticeship, or into employment.

GCSE English or maths re-sit class

These courses are ideal if you want to progress to a pathway but haven’t achieved the required grade 4 (or above) in GCSE Maths and English.

If you intend on applying to university, it is recommended that you look to boost your GCSE English grade by resitting the exam. This is because some universities require a grade 5 for entry.

This pathway bridges the gap between GCSE and A Level maths, providing you with extra UCAS points. It’s ideal if you like maths but don’t necessarily want to do a full maths A Level. You’ll also get the opportunity to attend an annual conference to network with employers and universities representatives.
