Pathways & Courses 2018-19


The two year Level 3 Pathway will enable students to develop their thirst for knowledge in a suitable combination of academic and vocational subjects. There is also a range of enrichment opportunities on offer for students to develop including student leadership and a range of clubs for student to participate in and thrive. Success in this study pathway can lead to a range of progression including a place at a top university.


The one year Bridging Pathway will allow students to improve key literacy and numeracy skills alongside completing a substantial Level 2 vocational qualification and effective work experience. It is a very successful route for students who would benefit from another year in a school environment to consolidate their GCSE portfolio in preparation for their next steps. Future progression from this route can include Level 3 study, an apprenticeship or employment.

NB. The Elite Sport Programme is available within the above pathways for students with exceptional aptitude in football or basketball.
