Allerton Grange is one of only a few schools in Leeds that teach A Level Law. It is a popular A level and is often followed by students who are also studying other subjects within the Society, Business and Health department.
The course follows a variety of topics from the workings of the legal system and laws themselves to the application of those laws in areas such as liability and criminal law.
Many of our students choose to follow Law courses at University after successfully completing their A levels, although Law is also a useful background for many diverse careers from Journalism to Politics.
Students starting in year 13 in 2017 will be following the AQA A level specification.
The course is examined at the end of year 13 through 2 unit examinations,unit 3 lasting 90 minutes and unit 4 lasting 2 hours and each being 25% of their total grade.
