Archway School

Subjects

We recognise that every student has their own aspirations and dreams.  The wide variety of approximately 25 A Level and BTEC Level 3 courses available at Archway Sixth Form provide a comprehensive set of options to choose from.  We are the only Post-16 provider in the Stroud area to offer this blend of traditional academic and vocational qualifications.

We ensure that the subjects on offer here can open the door of any UK university, and our students have gone on to achieve all over the country be it at university, college or through apprenticeships.

What is an A Level?

Advanced level qualifications (known as A levels) are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. At Archway you can study three or four A levels over two years. They’re usually assessed by a series of examinations, although many also include an element of coursework.

What is a BTEC/Cambridge National?

BTECs and Cambridge Nationals are specialist work-related qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. These courses combine practical learning with subject and theory content. They have a higher content of coursework than most A Levels, but there is also an examined element.
