KS5

The Academic Programme

You will undertake 3 full A Levels to study over two years. In addition you will study AS Level General English through which you will learn to become confident in analysing knowledge and opinion from a variety of sources, to build arguments and to communicate through written English.

A Levels offer the flexibility and challenge to students who relish the opportunity to study what they want and at greater depth. You will be able to choose subjects you have a real interest in thus allowing you to work to your strengths.

A Levels provide a sure foundation to university study and provide essential skills for the world of work. As our world becomes more globalised and competition for jobs increases, being excellent in three core subjects is going to be essential as well as having a broad knowledge of current affairs and the ability to communicate in writing. The level of subject knowledge is deeper and more thorough, providing a solid introduction to these subjects at degree level. They are a qualification that international employers recognise and they appreciate their value. At TPIS you will be taught by an enthusiastic team of outstanding subject specialists who will challenge you and support your progress and achievement.
