A Level

Spearheading through Cambridge Assessment International Education

Overview

The City School is far from being a Shakespearean comedy though we believe that students should explore and reflect on their interests, find out who they are and who they can be.

All will end well, due to the support given to students as they go through the highs and lows of their studies, extra-curricular activities and university placement with our dedicated college counsellors.

We have currently the best A-Level results in the country, the year 2021 seeing a record breaking 39 World Distinctions and Awards.

We offer a variety of scholarships for talented students.
