  • Biology
  • Physics
  • Psychology
  • Art and Design

Further A level subjects, such as Engineering, are available delivered by the nearby Magna Academy Poole as the timetables at Post 16 are interlinked to provide economies of scale.

Within each A Level course there will be an increasing emphasis on the application of real-life examples from the digital industries sector and computational thinking.

Each A Level course will receive 4 hours of teaching a week in school and 2 hours a week online learning at home.

One full day a week will be spent on the Aspirations Employability Diploma, with students working alongside people from with the digital industries sector on specific industry driven PBL.

All students will leave the Academy with the Unreal Engine accreditation.
