EXCELLENT TRACK RECORD OF DELIVERING LEVEL 2 COURSES

We have experienced and inspiring teaching staff who have an excellent track record of successfully delivering a range of GCSE courses.

High grades in these subjects are outstanding.

In your lessons you will have an experienced higher level teaching assistant (HLTA) who will stay with you in every lesson and support your journey. You will also have a pastoral form tutor who will meet with you in groups 3 times a week to cover PSHE activities as well as small group review meetings.
