A Level Curriculum

At Bishop Challoner we have taught A levels for many years.  For us, the excitement of A level teaching remains undiminished and we believe that there are huge challenges in mastering the content of any of the A levels we offer.  The A* grade, introduced in 2010, provides a real and demanding target for the most able.

The new reformed A Level qualifications are a two year, linear A Level course.  This means that the whole course is assessed in Year 13.  The examination in most cases consist of 3 written papers but this depends of the different exam boards

Students at Bishop Challoner School study 3 or 4 A Levels dependant on GCSE grades. If students who start four subjects begin to find difficulties coping with the rigours of their courses they may, following consultation with the Head of Sixth Form, be able to drop down to three subjects. All A level courses require the student’s whole hearted commitment in order to achieve the best possible result.

The school is proud that many of its students in Year 11 are seeking to return to the Sixth Form.
