‘There is a rich and impressive range of courses on offer for older students which match their interests and needs. There is a very strong curriculum focus on employability skills and this is raising achievement across all groups of students. Link courses with local colleges and BTEC courses in school are an integral part of the framework of choice. As a result, almost all Year 11 students remained in education after they left school.’
