A Level Access Course at Park House School

Course description

Students who narrowly fail to meet the entry requirements for their chosen Level 3 courses may choose to spend an additional year following Level 2 courses in Park House Sixth Form. This ‘bridging year’ is only suitable for those who are likely to achieve the entry requirements for Level 3 courses by the end of Year 12. Students who don’t achieve D grades in English and Mathematics GCSE at the end of Year 11 are advised to look at the wider vocational choice available at local FE colleges. The Level 2 offer will comprise of a combination of GCSE course including English and Mathematics and BTEC first certificate and diploma courses. Students who do not achieve D grades in English and Mathematics GCSEs in Year 11 are unlikely to achieve C grades in these subjects in Year 12. With very few exceptions they will need to continue their education elsewhere e.g. at FE college.
