18 month (January Start) A levels

This 18-month programme commences in January and involves 17 weeks of teaching for the first year and 31 weeks for the second year. The first two terms (in the first year of study) cover all the lower-sixth material, whereas the second year of study naturally covers the upper-sixth material.

Ashbourne offers 18-month A level students a variety of subject choices and to compensate for the reduced number of teaching weeks we offer students a greater number of teaching hours. Group sizes rarely exceed ten. Small classes provide a stimulating interactive environment. Students are able to clarify points by discussion with each other as well as with the teacher. Each student will have a personal tutor. During the lower-sixth year the personal tutors’ main responsibility is to monitor academic progress. For the upper-sixth year the main focus shifts towards guiding the student through their university application.
