Qualifications and Accreditation
All students in the sixth form work towards accreditations and Awards based on their individual prior attainment and qualifications gained in Key stage 4.
Students will have access to a personalised curriculum which will prepare them for their future, based on one of 3 pathways as well as individual EHCP targets.
Students are taught in distinct groups according to ability, curriculum need and social group. We believe that this is vitally important for students to gain the breadth of study they need before they leave the Sixth Form for their next destination.
Students work towards completing units over 3 years or less to gain specific accreditations to meet their needs, and develop their skills and knowledge within all areas of the ‘Preparing for adulthood’ framework.
