Our study programmes at Post 16 meet all of the national requirements for Post 16. If any pupils have not attained grades 4 in either Maths or English, they are required to study these subjects in Post 16 and are re-entered for the GCSE retakes in November in order to secure grade 4s or above in these core subjects. It’s our responsibility to support all pupils to achieve this basic benchmark.

All pupils study the equivalent of at least three level 3 qualifications (over 600 hours per academic year) and benefit from an excellent programme of work experience, careers, advice and guidance and personal development in order to prepare them for life beyond sixth form.
