A Levels are academic courses and Universities, and employers love them!
Take your aspirations higher
If you are passionate about going to University and are academically minded then A Levels are the traditional route to achieving your career aspirations.
Choosing to study A Levels allows you to keep your options open, with focused study of three or four subjects across two years. You’ll be based in MC6, our modern A Level Centre which boasts a vibrant, independent environment, and helps bridge the gap between school and University.

A Level success stories
If anyone is thinking of studying environmental science with MC6 I would recommend, it’s a really interesting subject to take and the ways we are taught can be really fun and engaging!
MC6 is supporting me with my career ambition and my A Levels and the experiences offered at MC6 are developing my transferrable skills and knowledge that will help me with my applications.
Along with the flexibility of the learning on offer, it’s been a great way to set me up for higher education.
I’m so pleased with my results and can’t wait to get to Durham University and eventually launch a career in statistics,
I’ve already secured a full-time job at banking giant Santander, and I’m eager to get more work experience in Computer Science over the next few months.
I’m interested in topics such as climate change, so studying environmental science was the perfect choice for me as it means I can learn about these topics in more depth.
My experience at the College has been great, my teachers have been so helpful and supportive and I’m feeling confident heading into my final exams.
I’d definitely recommend coming to study here, you get a level of independence that you usually wouldn’t find at more traditional sixth forms.
The careers team here are fabulous and they have helped guide me through the whole application process.
It is definitely the next step up from secondary school in terms of gaining independence and discovering who you are and what you want from your future.
I think it’s important to give yourself grace if you make a mistake. It’s not the end of the world and you can always try again.
