Pre A Level Course

The one-year, Pre A Level Course is intended to prepare overseas pupils for study in a British academic environment.

The course will teach a core course of Mathematics and the sciences, following the GCSE specifications, so that pupils wishing to study these subjects at A Level have the same foundation of knowledge as other pupils joining the Sixth Form. Pupils will also cover the GCSE Business Studies course, practising core reading, writing and analytical skills.

In addition to the strictly academic elements, the course includes lessons in EAL (English as an additional language), leading to a qualification in one of the Cambridge certificates. There will also be lessons in broader personal and social education, and an introduction to British society and culture.

Pupils on the one-year course will follow the same extra-curricular activities as those on the traditional two-year GCSE pathway.

The course is available for pupils aged between 15 and 17 who plan to study A Levels.

Entry Requirements:

  • Written assessments in Mathematics and English.
  • Interview with the Director of Admissions either in person or via Skype.
  • Translated copy of the most recent school report.

All offers will be subject to a satisfactory reference from the pupil’s current school.
