Welcome to our tutor introduction page.

A Level stands for ‘Advanced Level’ qualification and is a step up in content compared to GCSEs.

At Runshaw you can choose to study 3, 4 or 5 different subjects, with many of our students choosing the 3+1 option by studying 4 subjects in Year One, with the flexibility to drop one of these subjects. Your progress will be monitored over the course of the two years of study and you will complete your A Levels with exams at the end of your second year. Our A Level Programme will help you achieve your potential and acquire the skills needed for further study at University, a higher level Apprenticeship or employment.

Below you will find everything you need to know about your A Level subject. Simply click on your subject video link to meet your teacher or download your course leaflet!
