The Post 16 curriculum model includes a range of Level 2 and Level 3 programmes, Mathematics and English GCSE Resits, an Enrichment Programme (for Y12) and work experience time (for Y12).

Students are interviewed after their application is submitted and then after their GCSE results. Suitable programmes are developed for each student. Career ambitions are ascertained before decisions are taken.

The curriculum model allows for Level 2 students to progress to Level 3 courses and for Level 3 students to pursue one of three pathways: academic, vocational and mixed.  All students work towards completing 3 courses at Level 3 at the end of Year 13.



Students begin the important process of choosing their options around April of Year 8. Students will receive guidance from Careers, Tutors and Teachers. Information and guidance will also be provided on parental information evenings to provide key information on the choices available.
