Entry Requirements

All students must have a minimum of 6 GCSE passes graded at 9-5 (including English and mathematics), in addition to the course specific entry requirements detailed below and in our prospectus.

Students who choose to study A levels will be placed on to the linear 2-year course. Progression to Year 13 will be dependent on satisfactory achievement in Year 12 internal examinations.  Students who are seen to be at risk of dropping an A level course before completion will be entered for the AS level exams where possible.

Students who choose to study a vocational course (Applied Science, Business, Health and Social Care, Sport) will initially study for the Level 3 Certificate in that subject, progressing on to study the Level 3 Extended Certificate in Year 13 if achievement in Year 12 is satisfactory.

Curriculum

Our offer of subjects is a mixture of academic and vocational subjects that can be taken in many combinations to set students on the path towards their desired career. The majority of students will study 3 courses.

All courses are taught for 5 lessons per week, with students expected to put a similar amount of time into independent study per subject per week.
