We are proud of the unique experiences that are available to our students both inside and outside of the classroom. Our subject specialists will instil in you a love of learning, and challenge you to develop the required skills you’ll need to achieve the life-changing qualifications that will lead you to your dream career.

A Level Law provides students with a range of skills that are highly sought by both employers and universities. As such, the pathways on offer are incredibly varied; former students have gone on to serve in the Armed Forces, the Police Force, the Probation Service, Prison Service, whilst others become Teachers, Journalists and Social Workers. And of course, many former students progress to study Law at university and have since become Solicitors and Barristers.
A Level Law students have recently progressed to university to study subjects such as:
