About the course

Study Biology and Chemistry alongside your choice of a third subject.

A Levels are a great choice for those who thrive in a classroom setting and want to study more than one subject.

Classes at Farnborough are close-knit and often smaller than those at larger sixth forms, so you can look forward to plenty of opportunities for feedback and support.

Our team of friendly, qualified lecturers will provide resources and guidance to help you feel prepared for your next steps after college, whether that’s university, an apprenticeship, or employment.

By looking at popular combinations of A Levels, we have grouped our subjects together to offer you a distinct set of choices that form a pathway to particular university courses and careers. Your pathway consists of three A Level subjects, with an additional subject available for each pathway.

Your course

This A Level pathway includes two core subjects and your choice of a third subject:​


Have you ever wondered what the human body is made of, how we fight off diseases, and what role plants play in our lives? The study of biology provides a fascinating insight into all of these areas and more. At Farnborough, you will learn hands-on in our science lab, bringing biology to life through exciting experiments, research projects and dissections.


Studying chemistry at Farnborough involves learning hands-on in our science lab, conducting experiments with a variety of chemicals and elements to observe their effects. You will discover chemistry’s role in society and how it can provide innovative solutions to challenges in the modern environment.

Plus your choice of either:

Choice 1: Psychology

Studying psychology will give you a fascinating insight into the human mind, seeking to explain human behaviour and interaction through scientific research and social experiments. You will explore the different branches of psychology that seek to explain our thoughts, emotions and behaviour, discovering the influences of biology, child development, mental health and more.

Choice 2: Maths

Mathematical ability is a key skill to have in many careers and is used regularly in our everyday lives. In the study of maths, you will sharpen your problem-solving and reasoning skills, as well as learning key mathematical concepts to take your skills further.
