Logo original 20170612St Bede's Sixth Form will be offering the following wide range of subjects plus an EPQ in September 2022. All subject leaflets are available to download below.

A levels

Advanced level qualifications (known as A levels) are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. You can normally study three or four A levels over two years. They’re usually assessed by a series of examinations.

Who are they for?

If you’re thinking about going to university, most higher education courses require specific A levels or combinations of A levels (or alternative level 3 qualifications).
If you’re not sure what career or job you want to do, studying a selection of A levels can be a good way of keeping your options open.

Cambridge Technicals (CTEC)

Cambridge Technicals are a suite of vocational qualifications in a range of subject areas. Designed through consultation with employers and higher education providers, they offer opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge, and behaviours required to progress in both education and the workplace.

Who are they for?

Cambridge Technicals are designed specifically for students aged 16 and over, who have an interest in a particular sector.

They can be completed alongside other A level or vocational courses.
