A Level One-Year Courses

Ashbourne’s highly successful one-year A level courses are designed for dedicated and able students who will benefit from the individual support we offer to help our them achieve the highest grades, A and A*.

Flexibility, choice and outstanding results

Ashbourne’s one-year A level students achieve excellent results and university placements, with more than half of our students going on to Russell Group universities including UCL, Imperial College, LSE, Oxford and Cambridge.

Ashbourne is committed to offering as much choice and flexibility as possible to suit each student’s educational needs. Students can choose from an extensive range of A level subject choices, without restriction. These courses are ideal for students transferring from International Baccalaureate (IB) to A level, international students wishing to apply to British universities and students wishing to take up a new subject before reapplying to university, for example.

Key factors for success

Ashbourne’s unique teaching programme, individual attention and emphasis on exam technique are key factors in our success. We allocate significantly 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. Typically A level courses run over two years, split into AS (first year) and A2 (second year) level content. For the one-year A level course lessons for AS and A2 level are run in parallel from the outset with the more challenging second-year work receiving greater teaching time.

Individual attention and support

Small classes, with fewer than 10 students, create the ideal environment for students to engage fully and, importantly, for teachers to provide individual attention and feedback on assigned work. Students sit half-termly mocks, comprising past papers, that are followed up in class. This focus on exam technique helps students and teachers measure progress and identify areas to work on in a timely fashion. We believe this is critical to achieving the best A level results.

Personal Tutors

Building confidence is essential to students achieving their best, so every Ashbourne A level student is assigned a dedicated Personal Tutor who provides support and guidance throughout their time at the college. This allows students to discuss all aspects of their academic programme and personal development and includes one-to-one UCAS support, from choosing the right course, interview practice all the way to accepting the best offer.

Specialist University Programmes

We also offer specialised university application programmes for competitive courses such as Medicine and Engineering and entry to Oxford and Cambridge.

Adult-approach to learning

Ashbourne embraces a friendly, informal and adult approach to education, much like a university. We believe this encourages independent thinking, discipline and high expectations. We are situated in a fantastic part of London, close to many world-class venues and establishments, and we attract students from all over the world, making Ashbourne a vibrant and exciting place to learn.
