Gower College Swansea offers around 40 A Level subjects, many of which are 'new' as they are not offered at GCSE. In all A Level subjects, the first year of study is known as the AS Level and external assessment usually takes place at the end of the first year. The second year of study is the A2 year and also involves external examinations to gain the full A Level award.
It may also be possible to start a new AS subject in the second year of study.
We also offer a range of GCSEs on a part time basis. Students can re-sit GCSE English, Maths and Science - provision is made for these subjects to be studied within the first year of their course.
Humanities and Languages Student of the Year: Vickie Lovell
Vickie is studying a demanding programme of four AS Levels. She is also a member of the Young Carers Association, does voluntary work with under-privileged children and is a member of the Marine Cadets. By any measure, this student has a challenging programme of study and is achieving a very high standard in all her subjects, but the fact that she is achieving this on top of being a carer, doing additional voluntary work and being a cadet is a real testament.
