Key Stage 4 Accreditation

 

“Students benefit greatly from the wide range of opportunities there are for learning. Most of these lead to formal qualifications. As well as academic subjects, the school provides excellent arts-based and work-related courses. There are also opportunities to learn about different cultures and countries."

(OFSTED report June 2014)

Throughout Years 10 and 11, at each of our centres, students work to gain nationally recognised qualifications in a variety of subjects. They are also given the opportunity to complete work related learning programmes and vocational courses.

This year (2018-19) we are offering an incredibly wide range of GCSE, Level 1 and 2 qualifications.
