A level courses offered

    Advanced level courses

    The King Alfred School offers a wide range of AS and A2 courses. Our Sixth Form currently has 105 students, with a number of students joining from other schools every year directly into Year 12.  The Sixth Form strikes a balance between being big enough to offer a variety of A-level courses whilst retaining the close relationships and individual support that is so valued by students, teachers and parents alike. The transition from GCSE to A-level requires a different style of teaching and studying. We continue to encourage students to develop the ability to work independently.

    All AS subjects are taught for five 50 minute periods per week. At A2, this increases to six periods.

    • Art & Design
