Rachel Appleton, Chemistry A Level

As a small, local college, KGV had everything I wanted. Its comfortable environment suited me and I felt I could learn just as much here, if not more, than anywhere else. That’s certainly been the case and I’m really looking forward to going to University.

Kate Hornby, Classical Civilisation A Level

The Learning Centre is a brilliant facility; it has loads of books so you can fill in the gaps in your knowledge or expand your learning beyond the classroom.

Support Through College

We have a dedicated support and progress team here to help with all support issues you may have.

Dispelling the myths

College is quite different from school, you’ll be treated like and adult and follow your own timetable, organising your time and completing assigned work outside of lessons.

Visit our Travelling to College page to find out how to get to KGV College. You can also apply for a travel pass to cover the cost of transport to the College (terms and conditions apply).

If you’re finding it difficult to choose between subjects you can always find out more about them at one of our OPEN EVENINGS. We also offer a Taster Programme for pupils in Years 9,10 and 11 and Masterclasses for Year 10s and 11s where you can try one of courses to see if it is a good choice for you.

Visit our Schools page to find out more.

Many of our students choose to study three A Level courses, although high achieving students can request to study four subjects.

A mixed study programme allows you to choose three subjects from a combination of A Levels and BTEC A Level Equivalent Qualifications (two A Levels and one BTEC). This flexible programme means you can choose courses that match your strengths and interests.

If you choose to study a BTEC Extended Diploma, which is equivalent to three A Levels, you would be studying that one subject full-time, rather than a combination of subjects. The Extended Diploma combines theory and practical experience in one specific sector.

If you aged between 16 and 18 when you start your course you will not need to pay any course fees. However, there may be other costs associated with your course such as trips, visits or kit.

Depending on your circumstances you may be eligible for financial support. Contact our Reception team to find out how we can help you.
