​​​​​​​​Higher Education Opportunities for Sixth Form

Following our trip to Barnsley University Campus last term, our Post 16 students have recently enjoyed 2 days of Higher Education visits to Leeds Beckett University, where they sampled a variety of subject sessions related to their current BTEC course. Public Service students took part in Sociology, Psychology of criminal behaviour and Criminology, whilst Health and Social Care students participated in sessions based upon working with young people and families, Public Health and Platforms in the Community. We look forward to visiting other local HE providers as well as apprenticeship events in the coming months. We hope that such experiences will ensure our students are equipped to make the crucial decisions needed regarding life after Castleford Academy Post 16.  ​
