Our Study Programme comprises the following key elements:
Once your son/daughter has chosen the subject they are interested in, the College is committed to ensuring they are working at the right level and are constantly challenged to achieve.
Maths and English
Within their core qualification, students develop vital maths and English skills. If students do not yet have a grade 4 (C) or higher in these subjects at GCSE level, we will work with them towards achieving this goal.
Students will also have the opportunity to improve their GCSE grade if they already have a 4 (C) in maths and English.
Work experience and employability
As part of the wider Careers Programme, students will take part in sessions covering CV writing, interview skills, finding employment, time management, money skills, and personal development to build confidence.
We are also proud of our links with local employers, and offer exciting opportunities for students to participate in talks from guest speakers and industry visits to business venues. Students may be given the opportunity to take part in work experience placements during their time with us.
Support and progress
Weekly timetables are structured to accommodate dedicated sessions to discuss individual progress and support needs. These may take place one-to-one, or as a full-group activity.
As parents or carers of teenagers at secondary school, you may have already heard about T Levels. These two-year courses have been developed in collaboration with leading employers, so that the content meets the needs of industry and prepares young people for work.
One T Level is equivalent to three A Levels, so has the same UCAS points value, and combines classroom study with a significant work placement (called an industry placement).
Our A Level programme provides students with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding as broadly as possible, and to gain new skills that will prepare them for university and help their future career development.
