There isn’t a particular set of grades you need for the APP, instead we’ll meet with you to discuss whether or not the programme suits you. In many cases, students on the APP will have had some sort of barrier to achievement in GCSEs – perhaps long-term sickness, or having only been on the course for one year. You might have a spikey GCSE grade profile which shows you are strong in a couple of subjects but do not yet have the grades to begin a full level 3 A-level programme.
This is a one-year full programme of study designed to prepare students to begin A-levels after the year. We help you to build academic and transferable skills as well as subject-specific knowledge to ensure that when you start your A-levels, you can hit the ground running.
