​​​​Programme of Study

16 to 19 study programmes are designed to provide students with a structured and challenging learning programme that supports their development and progression in line with career plans. The study programmes we offer are individually tailored and combine the elements below:

      • Applied qualifications that stretch students and link clearly to training, employment and/or higher education.

      • English and Mathematics where students have not yet achieved a GCSE grade 4 (reformed grading).

      • Work experience to give young people the opportunity to develop their career choices and to apply their skills in real working conditions.

      • Other non-qualification activity to develop students' character, skills, attitudes and confidence, and to support progression. 

      • Opportunities to support young readers at the academy and local feeder schools as well as participating at extra-curricular clubs, and the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme will be made available to all students. 

All our study programmes aim to maximise progression to the next stage of education, employment or an apprenticeship. Our study programmes are designed to be full time (600 planned hours) to allow sufficient time to deliver the principles above.
