Pre-A Level, AGE: 15 (YEAR 11)

The Pre-A Level Programme is particularly for students who have not completed the two-year IGCSE programme to help them lay all important foundations ahead of the 2-year A Level Programme courses.

The programme is a one-year course, with intensive English tuition, designed specifically for students aged around 15 who wish to study for A levels but who need another year to be ready for its challenges. It concentrates upon courses in which students can excel in one year. At the same time, it provides comprehensive preparation for all the school’s A level courses. The Pre-A level course improves study skills and develops spoken and written English to a standard which will allow students to move on to A level courses after one year.
