Studying A-levels opens the door to Higher Education, preparing you to advance to the next stage of academic study.

Studying A-levels at Boston College provides opportunities you may not have experienced before. Not only do we offer traditional subjects like Maths, English Literature and History, but different options like Film Studies, Sociology and Psychology. In total there are 11 subjects to choose from and we work with you to find a timetable to allow you to study the subjects you enjoy most.

Our staff have extensive experience in teaching students from a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, and work hard to make learning as interactive as possible. They are well qualified too, with a range of specialist degrees and postgraduate master’s degrees. The excellent level of teaching shows not only through our 100% pass rate, but with most of our students securing places at top universities year on year.
Our Sixth building provides learners with a dedicated, purpose built, home. It has been designed to promote modern teaching and learning methods, with Smart-boards in every room.

In A-Levels we’re experienced at guiding learners through the UCAS application, helping you get the best chance of getting to university.

We treat learners as individuals, and focus on getting the best out of you.

Some of the TOP RATED Universities our students progressed on to...

> City University London
> Loughborough University
> York University
> University of Birmingham
> University of Leicester
> University of Sheffield
