The 6th Form curriculum also included significant enrichment activities such as physical education, careers education, University (UCAS) preparation and support for future pathways, including advice and support to secure apprenticeships and employment. Although these enrichment opportunities do not offer additional points, we feel our students benefit by leaving us with the skills to succeed in their future endeavours.
