We will accept grades A* – B at GCSE to be able to continue to study at AS level.  We study with the AQA Exam Board and the exam at AS and A2 is 50% with 50% Controlled Assessment.  Pupils who have an A level in Product Design can then study a wide range of degree courses or complete apprenticeships.  Our pupils who have studied Product Design have found a wide variety of jobs in areas such as architecture, product design, graphic design, marketing, packaging and interior design.
