Our 16-19 study programmes are personalised to each student to ensure they are suitable according to prior attainment, and to support their own education and career goals. All study plans will include one or more academic, applied or vocational qualifications. Where students do not hold A*-C grades for Level 2 English and Maths we will include the relevant GCSE course on the study plan. Students are encouraged to take part in meaningful non-qualification activity alongside their studies, for example we offer DoE awards and sporting activities for enrichment. These will help to prepare the student for employment, training or further education. We also offer meaningful work placements  to help students develop new skills and support their progression into a work environment.
