We believe it is important to use our discretion to give students an opportunity to continue their studies, even if they have not quite made the standard entry grades expected by other schools, because we want, where we can, to give our students every chance. To this end, we also offer a range of A-level and BTEC subjects to provide a rich academic and vocational offer and to make post 16 education more accessible.
