Advanced Study Programme (Level 3)

You are able to choose an Advanced Study Programme that is individualised to suit your interests and abilities. It will provide you with the knowledge skills and experiences to progress successfully to university, an apprenticeship or employment.

Your Advanced Study Programme (Level 3) will typically consist of 3 core subjects +1 additional option. In the first year this might be an AS course progression option or enrichment such as port, music or drama. 

In the second year your +1 might be a progression option such as The Extended Project Qualification , Arts Award, Core Maths or a Sports Leaders Award.

GCSE qualifications are most suitable for Level 3 study. A lack of GCSE English Language at grade 4 will significantly restrict study programme options. Equivalent qualifications at Level 2 in vocational courses are accepted, provided they are related to the course which has been applied for. However, theses courses are not adequate for entry alone for an Advanced Study Programme and would always need to be accompanied by an appropriate range of GCSEs.

What is an Advanced (Level 3) Qualification

At Godalming College we offer A Levels, Pre-U and BTEC Nationals. They attract UCAS points for university and are useful to provide evidence of advanced level study for employers and apprenticeship providers.

Advanced (Level 3) Entry Requirements

If you achieve at least 5 GCSEs at grade 9-4 you will qualify for study on a Level 3 programme. GCSEs are the most suitable qualifications for study at this level. See individual course for additional entry requirements in some subjects.

A Matter of Life and Death

A Matter of Life and Death

Visitors to STUDIO 816 this last week of term have been treated to a cinematic classic bought lovingly to life in our studio theatre; A Matter of Life and Death, based on the 1940’s film by Powell and Pressburger has offered a surprising, heartfelt and touching story to our audiences as we race towards the Christmas period. 

Theatre is many things to different audiences, and through this production ClassAction have explored a new side to our work grabbing the opportunity to explore different aspects of our craft, to open up thought and try out new techniques; story-telling, puppetry, hoop and bungee work. 

It is sometimes easy to forget that theatre can offer us a joyful experience, a night out to be told a story, to be entertained, amused and to be offered an escape from what is going on outside. STUDIO 816 is unique, magical and intimate, immediate and versatile – a place to be transported back to a state of whimsical openness, to the primal need to tell and hear stories, and to a world of rare interaction, and that is what it has offered our “full house” audiences this week.  

This performance was nurtured and developed alongside a wonderful performance company, it was tender, touching, delicate and joyful – a wonderful way to welcome in the holiday season.
