When commencing an AS course in Year 12, we will assume that students wish to proceed to A2 level in Year 13.

Exceptions to this are:

  • If the course is to be run at AS level only

  • If students have taken four AS levels and wish to drop one of these to complete three at A2 level.

This must be discussed with a member of the Sixth Form Management team.

Having received AS results in August, we will want to discuss the outcome with students before they continue on to A2. This will usually happen on results day, or at the start of Year 13 and applies whether results are good or not. We do not want students to simply leave school if their results are not what was expected – there may be a solution to this and advice and guidance will be crucial.
