The A - Level School Day
Making the move from school to A Levels doesn't have to be daunting. We have a dedicated A Level centre and our staff are experienced and well qualified in their subjects – browse our range of A Levels and set yourself up for a successful career or a place at university.
The school day will closely match the day for secondary but will run on a flextime basis. School will begin at 8.20am and finish at 2.20pm and students are expected to be in school during this time.
Like all A-Level centres, students will not be in class at all times during the day. Most days will contain a mixture of taught classes and study periods in which students are to complete independent learning tasks or additional research.
We also expect A-Level students to participate in extra-curricular activities such as sports clubs or drama productions and to be proactive with school events.
