We generally ask for an Attainment 8 score of 5.5 or above (including a 5 or above in English and maths) for our two-year A Level programme and a score of 4.8 to 5.4 for our three-year programme. For clarification on attainment 8 please visit the DfE’s summary page

Some subjects also have their own additional entry requirements; please see the relevant course pages for details.

We are confident that we have a range of A Level courses that will get you to university and will discuss entry requirements with you at interview so please come and talk to us!

To work out entry requirements we use a score called Attainment 8.

How to work out your Attainment 8 score

The scores for all eight subjects are added together (with English and maths counting twice), then divided by 10.

For example:

Isabelle’s GCSE grades

Subject Grade
English Language 6 x 2 = 12
Maths 7 x 2 = 14
Biology 6
Chemistry 6
Physics 6
History 6
French 4
Total 59

Isabelle then divides 59 by 10, giving her an Attainment 8 score of 5.9. Isabelle would also need to check the specific entry requirements of the pages she would like to study to ensure she meets these.
