Kings has a formal progression agreement from the Advanced Level Foundation to Lancaster

Lancaster University is one of just a few universities within the UK to have a collegiate system. It has an excellent academic reputation and is a member of the N8 Research Partnership: an association of the eight most research-intensive universities in the North of England. It is consistently ranked among the UK Top 10. The attractive university campus occupies a 360-acre parkland site three miles from the city centre.

Lancaster University acknowledges the Kings' Advanced Level Foundation as equivalent to A-levels, providing students with an alternative pathway to higher education. Students who meet the specified foundation grades are offered a place at the university, giving them the opportunity to pursue their academic goals and excel in their chosen field.
