A-Levels enable students to specialise in subjects they love, with a view to a future career. A lighter weekly timetable also means they learn to manage time and make the most of private study and enrichment opportunities.
Every Head of Department at Brighton Girls is also an experienced A-Level teacher and able to give expert guidance at every stage.
The majority of girls take three full A-Levels and they can choose freely from the many subjects we offer. Specific details of those available, along with the extra-curricular opportunities and support we provide, can be found here.
Students also supplement their A-Level studies with the highly regarded AQA Extended Project Qualification, completed during the first year. In addition, we also offer a choice from our ‘Liberal Arts’ course, which includes Modern Foreign Language Diplomas in French, Spanish or German, BTEC Cookery or Maths in Context. This means girls can tailor the curriculum to give them the ideal foundation for further study.
The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) allows girls to go beyond the A-level syllabus and prepare more fully for university or a future career. It’s a flexible way to enrich their studies, with a choice of areas to explore and investigate. It also effectively adds half an A-level to their qualifications as an A* grade adds 28 UCAS points.
Although this standalone qualification is studied independently, girls are fully supported with 120 guided learning hours. 30 of these are study skills sessions that focus on identifying, planning, managing, researching and developing projects.
