Transition

During the summer term we run a transition programme open to all new students from year 9 and year 10. It provides an opportunity to settle in, experience the different qualifications on offer and attend fun and enriching trips. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Programme details

Learners are placed into a Core group based on their prior learning and baseline assessments. As well as following the subjects in their core group, they also pick a vocational qualification to follow. 

Students also take part in workshops and educational trips linked to their learning or aspirations.
