Post 16 Curriculum Rationale
Our KS5 curriculum is fully inclusive, students can follow academic routes, vocational routes, or a combination of both to ensure progression into Higher Education, Russell Group, Higher Apprenticeships, Further Education or relevant employment. A full RE programme is incorporated into the students study programme, and supported with external visits and external delivery on the college site. Students follow an enrichment programme to support their vocational studies or Higher/Further Education application.
Students are also involved in a ‘work inspiration’ programme that includes guest speakers, employability interviews and a bespoke week’s work placement in their preferred area of interest. There are elite sporting academies in basketball, dance, football and mixed martial arts, in which students can follow academic/vocational programmes, and outside of the curriculum receive focussed coaching and competitive fixtures.

Provision for students' care, guidance and support is outstanding.
