LEVEL 3 TRIPLE DIPLOMAS
Lytham Sixth Form College offers high-achieving school leavers the opportunity to study a Level 3 Triple Diploma (equivalent to three A-levels), which provides a route through to the highest achieving universities and graduate careers.
Just like A-levels, Level 3 Triple Diplomas carry the maximum possible 168 UCAS points to gain you entry to university. They are generally more practical and assignment based than A-levels but equally valued by universities and employers alike.
The broad academic and technical and professional provision available at Lytham Sixth Form College means we are able to accommodate the full range of needs, aspirations and abilities of school leavers within the local community.
