To be eligible for A-Levels, students must have a minimum of five GCSE passes at Grade 5 or above and this would normally include Maths and English.

To study a subject at A-Level a minimum of a Grade 6 is required at GCSE. To study Mathematics a minimum of a Grade 7 is required at GCSE. For subjects that have not been taken at GCSE Grade 6 in related subjects is required.

It is possible for students to join the college for Year 13 having completed Year 12 at another school or college but this is dependent on a previous school report, the subjects to be taken and content compatibility.

A-Level retakes

For re-take students a copy of A-Level grades will be required as well as the previous ucas reference (if applicable). Students can retake up to three subjects but this will depend on the grades achieved already and an assessment of the progress which can be expected in relation to prior attainment
