Wide range of subjects with professional facilities and excellent destinations

If you enjoy academic subjects, want to study them in more depth and perform well in exams, then you should consider A Levels, particularly if you intend to go to university.

If you don’t know which subjects to choose, then opting for the ones you most enjoyed at school is a good starting point.

Craven College has a much more exciting choice of A levels than you would normally see at school, allowing you to complement more traditional subjects with Geology, Media and Photography.

As we also have other courses in A Level subject areas, it means that our facilities are second to none.
