A Levels, typically spanning two years, offer specialised study in a variety of subjects, forming an integral part of the journey towards higher education and diverse career opportunities.
A Levels provide students with a comprehensive, in-depth exploration of academic subjects.
In 2023, 1 in 3 Stamford College A Level students achieved high grades A* to B, surpassing the national outcomes by an impressive margin of 0.8%, to achieve a pass rate of 98% overall.
