Five-term A Level Programme

Start your A Levels in January

If you are unable to start in September, our five-term A Level courses, starting in January 2019 and finishing with examinations in June 2020, mean you can start university in 2020.

The course covers all the A Level specification in a shorter time. In your first two terms, you will receive extra teaching to allow you to catch up with those that start in September.

As well as having additional separate intensive lessons, you will also benefit from being integrated into classes with students on the two-year programme. This makes it easy to integrate fully into the college, to make lots of friends and to enjoy the advantages of the CCSS intensive teaching approach.

Your reward for working more intensively is saving a full term’s fees, effectively giving you a scholarship for hard work!

As in all CCSS classes, five-term course students will benefit from our small class sizes and individual approach to support. This is so you can learn quicker and better and gain all the confidence you need for University studies.

Current five-term A Level courses include:


CCSS is an established independent college providing day and boarding places for ambitious young people from the UK and internationally. For over 35 years we have been helping students progress to the very best universities.

Small class sizes (6-8 students)

The small group teaching environment allows for greater engagement with the teachers, each student is given individual attention and can develop at their own pace. Our results show that students benefit greatly from our small class sizes, the teachers are able to bring all students into group discussions and conversations allowing the students to gain confidence and progress to their full potential. This support means that the overwhelming majority of CCSS students choose to successfully continue their learning at universities in the UK and abroad.

Excellent boarding

Our boarding houses are some of the best available anywhere. Ensuite rooms in the best addresses in the centre of Cambridge and staffed by well‑trained professionals whom students know well, and whose first priority is the care and support of our boarding students.

Central Cambridge location

CCSS is located in the heart of academic Cambridge and we ensure that our wonderful location is used to full advantage by our students, encouraging them to make full use of the academic, social and cultural opportunities that are available to them.

Enrichment activities – A true Cambridge experience

As our buildings are in central Cambridge CCSS can provide the true Cambridge experience of culture, intellect and enjoyment. From cinema to science lectures at Cambridge University, basketball to language clubs, we offer an enormous range of educational and social activities.
