Ringing alarm clock


Students across West Berkshire and beyond have been receiving their GCSE results. For many, the outcomes will be a cause for celebration, marking the culmination of hard work and dedication. However, for others, the results may be a curveball, not reflecting the ambitions they had set for themselves. Whichever group you find yourself in – Newbury College offers a career-focused curriculum for you.

Alternatives to A Levels

Remember, your GCSE grades are just one snapshot of your education journey. Not achieving the GCSE results you hoped for can feel like a setback, but it’s crucial to remember that there are many paths to success.

Career-focused programmes and apprenticeships at Newbury College offer a practical approach to learning and can lead to successful careers in various sectors. You can also continue with your Maths and English GCSE qualifications alongside your main subject study, with added experience and perspective.
