About the school

  • Long description:
    Sixth Form

    Almost every pupil at Cheltenham College takes three full A-level courses and one AS-only. Each A level is made up of two parts: AS (Advanced Subsidiary) and A2 (Advanced 2nd year). To get a full A-level in a subject pupils must take AS and A2 in that subject. AS Level exams are taken at the end of Lower Sixth and A Level exams at the end of Upper Sixth.

    We advise all pupils to choose subjects that they really enjoy and that interest them. When making choices, it is worth bearing in mind that some university courses or careers require specific subjects (eg Chemistry and/or Biology for many medical subjects such as Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Science or Physiotherapy, and Mathematics A Level for many Economics courses).

    In general, the minimum requirement for doing a subject at A-level is a B grade at GCSE either in the subject itself or in a closely-related one (GCSE History for Politics, Maths or Physics for Economics).
    We always do our very best to meet pupils’ combinations and choices of subjects.

    The subjects on offer are:



    Business Studies or Economics


    AS Critical Thinking

    Design and Technology: Resistant Materials or Textiles

    English Literature



    Latin and Ancient Greek

    History of Art
