Pre A Level Year

A specialised one year course to help international pupils prepare for A Level study.

The course is designed to offer intensive English language lessons and to sample some of the subjects that can be chosen for A Level study. It is possible for Pre A-level Year pupils to enter some GCSE examinations where appropriate.

Pre A level pupils receive at least 30 programmed hours of lessons each week of which 7 will be intensive language lessons as well as taking part in a full games programme. A Pre A level Science Programme is also taught so that pupils are better placed to choose sciences for further study.

Who is it for?

Pupils who are 15-16 years old and wish to prepare for A Level study in a single year by improving their English and subject knowledge. Pupils start in January or September, receive 30 lessons per week and will need to show a good proficiency in English. This will be tested on entry to the School and at interview alongside consideration of school reports.
