New A Level Specifications

From September 2015 new specifications for A Levels were implemented for Art, Craft and Design; Biology; Business; Chemistry; Economics; English Literature; History; Physics; and Psychology.

These subjects are now assessed at the end of the two year A Level course. AS qualifications in these subjects involve stand-alone examinations after the end of the Lower Sixth year and do not contribute towards an A Level grade.

Other subjects will move to this two-year course format in 2016/17 and 2017/18.

Please note that other subjects may be offered from time to time. Please contact the Admissions Office on +44 (0)1284 385308 or email admissions@culford.co.uk
