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.

Music in the Park

Godalming College's music department opened the season of Music in the Park at the Bandstand in The Burys.  Students from the college’s concert orchestra and jazz band performed a two hour set in sunshine to a large audience. 

Rosie Sutton (A2 Music student) wrote an arrangement of Live and Let Die where she performed a dramatic virtuosic solo part on the electric violin. Big thanks to her!

Some of the pieces performed:

• Orchestra performed: Blues Brothers Medley, Pomp and Circumstance, Party Dance Mix, Happy

• Jazz Band performed: September, Knock on Wood, Skyfall, Sway

Special thanks to the upper sixth students who are now sadly leaving us after two years of incredible music making. They will be missed but will go down in the history of Godalming College as being one of the best orchestras ever!

More chances to catch the Jazz Band, Godalming College Singers and Chamber Choir at Arts Festival on 3rd July.
