York College is delighted to be ranked as Yorkshire’s No.1 General Further Education College and rated in the top three Colleges in the country for A Levels (based on A Level points per entry).
Rated Outstanding by Ofsted (December 2013), the College offers the widest range of A Level qualifications in the region. The College’s A Level Faculty offers almost 40 subjects which students can study in almost any combination; including all the traditional subjects, three types of English, History and Art subjects, and more unusual A Level subjects such as Geology, Film Studies and Law.
The College’s substantial A Level results have been consistently above the national average for 22 consecutive years. In 2016 York College’s A Level students achieved a 99.8% pass rate, with over 55% of students attaining high grades (A* - B).
This year approximately one thousand York College students (who study a range of A Level, Vocational, Access and Foundation Degree courses) have submitted successful UCAS applications. Out of this significant number, five students have secured conditional Oxbridge places.
Glyn Jones, Assistant Principal for A Levels at York College says: “The College is often described as the ideal stepping stone between school and university or employment. With a ‘junior university’ ethos, specialist tutors and important pastoral support, the College’s outstanding learning environment enables students to perform to the best of their ability and progress to the next stage of their careers.”
For advice and guidance on A Levels, students in Year 10 and 11 (and their parents) are welcome to attend the next York College Open Evening on Wednesday 8th March between 6.00m and 8.00pm. There is no need to book, just turn up!
