A Level Transfers

Ashbourne welcomes applications from students who would like to transfer to the college from another school, whether in the UK or overseas.

Smooth transition

Ashbourne works closely with every student to create an education programme that is tailored to their individual needs making any transition as smooth as possible, including moving from AS level to A level. Students can choose from more than 25 A level subjects, without restriction, and select different course lengths where appropriate, including starting a new one-year A level.

Students wishing to transfer to Ashbourne for their second year of A level may need to change exam boards. In general, at least 85% of content is common to all exam boards making it a relatively straightforward transition. Ashbourne allocates more teaching hours per subject than most schools allowing students to complete the syllabus in a relaxed and confident manner with plenty of time for revision at the end of the course.

With fewer than 10 per class our teachers are able to offer students individual attention ensuring they cover all the necessary content and are able to provide feedback on assigned work. Students sit half-termly mock exams, based on past papers, allowing them to assess their progress and develop essential exam technique, which we believe is critical to achieving the best A level results.
