One-year A Level
MPW Locations offers over 40 different subjects as one year A levels, taught separately from our two year A levels in small classes of 9 and below. We offer a wide range of support to students undertaking our shorter A level programmes as recognise the focus required to successfully complete courses in this timescale.
Each student’s Personal Tutor is responsible for co-ordinating college wide support for progression to Oxbridge, Russell Group, and specialist universities such as medical schools following completion of their A level pathway.
One-Year A Level Courses
Students on one-year A level courses at MPW typically have previous experience of sixth-form work, or equivalent, but may well be taking one or more fresh subjects from scratch. We provide comprehensive advice at interview on the fit between various subject options and the rest of a student’s academic profile and university aspirations.
One-year course structure
Students may choose from the full list of A level subjects on offer and, as with all MPW courses, may study any subject alongside any other over any course duration. One-year courses are often taken in association with either longer or shorter courses depending on the student profile. The courses are self-contained, covering the whole of the syllabus and are both more intensive as well as being run entirely separately from the second year of our two-year programme. Students should be prepared for a demanding workload in which the pace of syllabus coverage is faster, the homework volumes greater and the supervised exam practice sessions more frequent.

"I have loved MPW. The class sizes are very small and it is easy to ask questions. The teaching is really interactive and they all care so much about the students. My Director of Studies helped a lot with my UCAS statement, suggesting what to include and perfecting it with me. I honestly don’t think I would have go any university offers without her help."

"I’ve had three fantastic years at MPW: I’ve had a happy time; I’ve met some amazing people; and, most importantly, I’ve left school knowing that I have fulfilled my potential, leaving with GCSE and A Level grades that I can be proud of. I feel that the teachers and Directors of Studies all care deeply about their students' futures and performance."

"All of my teachers have been great; they are experienced, friendly and treat us all like adults rather than teenagers. I’ve also enjoyed being in a city. There is so much to do and we’ve been on a lot of theatre trips after school which is something I hadn’t been able to do before. My favourite thing about MPW has been the people I have met."
