The Sixth Form College, Solihull offers a wide range of Level 3 courses, with A Level, BTEC and Technical Level 3 courses on offer for students to choose.
You have choices! Below are the three programmes of study you can apply for:
- 3 A Level subjects (standard entry)
- 4 A level subjects (high achievers)
- 1 BTEC Extended/Technical Level 3 Diploma (standard entry)
All our courses are 2-year full-time courses. Those courses in our A levels list must be studied as part of a 3/4 subject programme of study; those in our BTEC Extended/Technical Level 3 Diploma are equivalent to studying three A Levels on their own, so only a single course should be selected. See our 16-19 Study Programme Requirements.
We have two standard entry options (3 A levels or 1 BTEC Extended/Technical Level 3 Diploma), but our most able and ambitious of students (usually with at least 5 A/A* grades at GCSE) may wish to study 4 subjects at A Level. This will often include students who choose to study A Level Mathematics with Further Maths. Students must commit to four subjects for the full two years. There are Entry Requirements that students must achieve whatever programme of study they select.
Learn more about these different qualifications, as well as the significant changes that are taking place in education nationwide by reading our A levels and Applied Courses pages. You may find our Curriculum FAQ useful to answer any questions you may have about changes to courses taking place nationwide.
Specific information on what is taught in each of our courses is available via our course pages. These pages include downloadable PDF leaflets with case studies, exam results and the names of teachers on each course.
You can also read about the Specialist Academies we run, which are enrichment options linked to particular courses or careers. These are enrichments and do not form the main part of a students’ programme of study, but they can significantly boost their university and career progression opportunities.
