Our post 16 curriculum has a variety of pathways to offer for the 16-19 study programmes:
Academic Pathway – All our students have the opportunity to follow 3 A -Levels in a variety of subjects, or the equivalent. A-Level study programmes also include extension/development or non-qualification activities such as tutorials, work experience, personal or study skills, support and workshops for students to progress to employment, training or Higher Education.
Applied General Pathway – A selection of Level 3 vocational courses that enables students to specialise in a certain area and provides A-Level equivalent courses. Also allowing students to develop transferable knowledge and skills. These courses are ideal for post-16 students who want to continue their education through applied learning and gain entry requirements for a range of Higher Education courses, usually either by meeting the entry requirements in their own right, or being accepted alongside other qualifications at level 3, such as A-Levels.
Combination Pathway – The opportunity to study a mix of A-Level and Applied General Courses.
Non-qualification activities – We offer a wide variety of meaningful additional qualifications and non-qualification activities to develop a student’s character, broaden their transferable employability skills, allow them the chance to build their confidence, resilience and attitude, all while supporting their well-being and opportunities for progression after Post 16. Life skills are also developed through various activities/workshops including discussion about independent travel, cooking and eating healthily, staying safe, how to make sustainable choices, manage personal finances, and preparing for adult or university life. All students are also part of a Healthy Relationships day in Year 12 and Year 13 and further information can be found in the ethos and events sections.
All of the above routes provide students with the opportunity to continue studying at University or move smoothly into Higher level apprenticeships or employment.
