Entry Criteria

Our entry criteria take into account the performance of different ability students in previous cohorts at Harlington School. We offer a fresh start for all learners and to that effect it is vitally important that students are placed onto courses on which they will achieve success. We offer a variety of courses and each course has specific entry requirements according to its difficulty.

A level BTEC level 3 BTEC level 2
5 GCSE passes at Grade 4 or above including English Language and Mathematics. 5 GCSE passes at Grade 4 or above including English Language and Mathematics. 4 GCSE passes at Grade 3 or above. They cannot have studied the same Level 2 course previously.

English and Mathematics GCSE

Harlington School offers GCSE retakes in English Language and Mathematics as it is compulsory for students to achieve at least grade 4 in these subjects in Year 11. In order to study for a GCSE retake students must be studying a Level 2 course as their main programme. We are unable to offer GCSE retakes as stand-alone programmes of study. Students must continue to study English and/or Mathematics in Year 13 if they fail to achieve grade 4 in Year 12.
