Years 10 and 11
In the option system pupils can take BTEC Business. One of the main requirements of this course is that the pupils should be organised! The assessment is via coursework.


Year 12
We offer a one year course in Leisure and Tourism Intermediate GNVQ (Full Award). This qualification is equivalent to 4 GCSE passes at C or above. This course has proved useful to those students wishing to move on to advanced courses, but who lacked the necessary GCSE results to embark on level 3 (A level) courses at the end of Y11. By doing this course, other students find that they develop greater confidence and skills, helping them in the transition between school and work.


Years 12and 13
At AS and A2 level, we offer vocational A levels in Science, ICT, Leisure Studies, Travel and Tourism and Business. These can be taken as one year AS courses or two year A2 courses. We also offer BTEC Sport (Outdoor Education) to A2 equivalent, please note that this is a two year course only (there is no AS equivalent).
