High Pavement Sixth Form

Begin your journey to your dream university or career with A Levels at High Pavement Sixth Form Academy.

Based right in the heart of Nottingham, High Pavement has everything you need to succeed in your studies – a dedicated team of lecturers, well-equipped classrooms, great facilities and strong links with our neighbour Nottingham Trent University.

With great subjects to choose from, individual support sessions with career development coaches and brilliant support from expert teachers, there really isn't anywhere better to reach your full potential.  
High Pavement is an adult environment where your fellow students will all be studying A Levels too. You'll have the opportunity to meet new people and experience more independence than at school, but you’ll also find you have lots of support to settle in and succeed in your studies. You'll meet regularly with your tutor to discuss your progress and iron out any difficulties you may be having.

If you’d like to study in the city, in a supportive environment with excellent links to universities locally and nationally, High Pavement is the place for you.

Alternative options

3 year combined GCSE top up plus A Levels
If you didn't quite achieve the GCSE's you needed to study your A Levels, you can study with us for 3 years to re-sit your GCSE’s alongside completing your A Levels. 


1 year intensive A Level course

If you're looking to improve, retrain or achieve additional qualifications to get into university then our 1 year intensive A Level programme could be for you. Study 1 full A Level alongside 1 or 2 AS Levels or study just 2 full A Levels.

Get in touch with us to discuss your options for September. Call 0115 9100 100 or email enquiries@nottinghamcollege.ac.uk
