Five-term A Level programme with CCSS

BusinessIf you are looking for a fresh start in January, our five-term A Level courses are the ideal choice. 

The next course starts in January 2019 and finishes in June 2020, meaning that you will stay on track with your peers and you will be able to apply for university courses starting in 2020. 

Why study with us?

CCSS is part of the Stephen Perse Foundation family of schools, renowned for academic excellence and named Independent School of the Year in 2014 (TES). As a Stephen Perse student you'll enjoy:

  • SportsSmall class sizes (6 to 8 students) with teachers who will know and understand the way you learn, tailoring their approach to make sure you get the most out of every lesson
  • A diverse range of extra-curricular activities within our enrichment programme, from sport and drama to music and debating
  • Guidance programme that includes inspirational events (including talks from Cambridge University lecturers and more) alongside tailored careers and university advice and support
  • Preparation for life beyond the sixth form, becoming an independent learner in control of your own studies

Five-term A Level structure:

First two terms (January to June 2019): You'll need to work more intensively in your first two terms, receiving additional teaching time to catch up with those who started in September. 

Second year (September 2019 to June 2020): You'll study at the same pace as everyone else in your year group, preparing for your examinations and spending time on university applications.

Live and learn in Cambridge

CCSSYou can study with us and live at home like many of our more local students, or you can take advantage of our excellent boarding accommodation.

Our boarding houses are all just a short walk or cycle ride from teaching buildings and the city centre. They offer the perfect balance of freedom and support - you'll get much more independence than you would at a traditional boarding school, so you can make the most of what's on offer in the exciting city of Cambridge, but you will also benefit from supportive boarding staff who will always be there if you need them.

"You know that, whatever happens, you’re not alone... the staff know and understand us." Carolina, 18
