A Level

Stonyhurst is a wonderful place to study A Levels. Not only are the teachers fantastic in their subjects, they are helpful and supportive. It’s a great learning environment and a great place beyond the classroom.

Years 12 and 13 students (called 'Higher Line' at Stonyhurst) will choose three or  four A Level subjects and they are also given the opportunity to choose an additional qualification such as an EPQ, to complement, and offer breadth to their A Level studies.

Why choose A Levels?

If you have a clear preference for certain subjects and know exactly where your interests lie, A Levels provide an excellent opportunity to study fewer subjects in detail. A Levels are traditional, academic qualifications, highly valued by universities and employers alike. We offer a range of A Level subjects most of which are regarded as facilitating subjects for entrance to the UK’s most prestigious universities.
