Post-16

Here at Belle Vue Girls' Academy we have a strong tradition of catering for female students' needs for learning. Our courses are offered at all levels from Entry Level to Level 3 so students can progress regardless of their starting point. We are proud of our record in helping students to achieve qualifications, employment and places in further and higher education. We have very strong links with local universities and pride ourselves on our ability to offer precise and detailed advice and guidance not only on a possible career but on the best route into a specific learning or career programme.

AS and A levels each have five hours teaching per week and main vocational programmes at Level 1 and Level 2 have up to fifteen hours, often with an element of work experience. Main programmes are supplemented by courses which broaden student experience and opportunities.
